Cannabis and Employment Law
Rebecca Stephens will present the session "Cannabis and Employment Law" at the Network of Trial Law Firms' Litigation Management in a New York Minute – 2019 Edition event.
Overview: Medical marijuana is now legal in 33 states and in our nation’s capital; and, recreational use is permissible in 10 states. Employers now ponder how this new landscape impacts their workplace policies. Additionally, a growing number of states are writing employment protections into their marijuana legalization statutes. This session addresses the ever-changing employment law issues relating to cannabis, including drug testing policies, employers’ ability to discipline employees under the influence, and reasonable accommodation requirements.
