The evolving legal landscape regarding marijuana use, whether medicinal or recreational, is enough to drive the savviest employer mad.

Employers need to be aware of the laws relating to marijuana use in each jurisdiction in which they have employees and maintain compliance with the state and federal laws that govern the workplace. Join us for a one-hour webinar to discuss how to navigate these varying regulations.

Topics will include:

  • The recent Colorado Supreme Court decision in Coats v. Dish Network and its effect on employers’ enforcement prohibitions on marijuana use
  • An employer’s obligation to accommodate medicinal marijuana use as treatment for a disability
  • The effect on the provision of employer-sponsored health and welfare benefits
  • Implications of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s General Duty Clause for employees in safety-sensitive positions
