Marijuana in the Workplace
Key issues and implications

October 6, 2015

Who Should Order This Homestudy

Attorneys, executives, HR and management professionals, in-house counsel and anyone else involved with marijuana and employment law and policy

Why You Should Order

At least 24 jurisdictions now have laws that legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Five of those jurisdictions - Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and the District of Columbia - also have legalized the drug for recreational use. Because state laws in this area are relatively new, most have not yet been interpreted by courts. This means there is little guidance about what the laws mean, much less any clear direction for employers that are trying to determine how to modify their employment policies to take into account the new laws. Compounding the uncertainty for employers is the fact that federal law continues to prohibit marijuana use, distribution, and possession for any reason.

In this ninety-minute, audio-only TeleBriefing our panelists will discuss the implications of medical marijuana in the workplace and provide guidance on how employers can ensure that their policies and practices comply with applicable law, particularly in Arizona and Colorado.
