New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed legislation on February 22 enabling the constitutional amendment to legalize adult recreational use of cannabis and a companion decriminalization bill. Each law has significant employment implications, including a requirement in the enabling legislation that employers procure a “Workplace Impairment Recognition Expert” to conduct physical evaluations to determine marijuana use and impairment in the workplace.

Please join us for a one-hour webinar discussing what exactly these laws are, how they will affect New Jersey employers, and how employers should move forward with them in place.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:

  • Employment provisions of the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization Act (NJCREAMMA)
  • Employment aspects of the decriminalization law
  • Recommendations for employers
