Marijuana in the workplace: navigating its impact on safety and work performance
February 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
As marijuana legalization continues across the states, businesses are reconsidering their stance on marijuana. While most businesses prohibit impairment at work, others are considering relaxed standards for medical and recreational use that doesn’t affect work. Some businesses can’t relax standards for fear of being the employer that hires pot smokers or because of their extremely safety-sensitive environment. Join us for a discussion of the current law, recent court decisions, and diverse company reactions to marijuana legalization.
What you will learn from this session:
- State and federal trends regarding marijuana
- Whether courts allow companies to prohibit marijuana use
- Common employer concerns and challenges; and
- How to design a drug policy and train supervisor to focus on impairment.
