Overview
The impact of marijuana use on the workplace is skyrocketing. State after state legalizes its use, not just for medicinal purposes, but for recreational ones too. At the same time, the Feds haven't legalized any of its use.

The two most common questions employers have are:

Our company does drug screenings, and an employee has provided a medical marijuana card. How do we handle that?
Our state allows recreational marijuana. What does this mean if we have a drug-free workplace policy?
The answers to these questions involve numerous factors, including but not limited to the following.

The state they are in
Why somebody is using it (medicinally or recreationally)
How recently they used it
The safety aspects of their job
The company's policy on marijuana use
In this training, Don will summarize the challenges faced by employers in managing employee marijuana use, explain the law addressing this subject, describe relevant marijuana testing devices, and analyze recent court cases. He'll finish with a few words of advice for the wise.

Why you should Attend
The impact of marijuana use on the workplace is skyrocketing. State after state legalizes its use, not just for medicinal purposes, but for recreational ones too. At the same time, the Feds haven’t legalized any of its use.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), studies suggest specific links between marijuana use and adverse consequences in the workplace, such as the increased risk for injury or accidents. One study among postal workers found that employees who tested positive for marijuana on a pre-employment urine drug test had 55 percent more industrial accidents, 85 percent more injuries, and 75 percent greater absenteeism, compared with those who tested negative for marijuana use.

Not only is legalization a new problem for management, it’s also a new problem for law enforcement and the courts. Defining what it means to be "under the influence" is difficult at best, and there are few accurate measuring methods available. Thankfully that is beginning to change
