Part One: Marijuana in the Workplace

October 1, 2019 - 2:00PM to 3:00PM

 

In 33 states the medical use of marijuana has been legalized. Eleven states have passed laws authorizing the personal, adult-use of marijuana and 18 states have authorized the use of CBD. This does not take into account the growing legalization of hemp and hemp-based products such as CBD.

 

What are the workplace ramifications of this increased use of marijuana and CBD? Are employers limited in taking action against an employee or applicant who claims to use marijuana legally but tests positive for marijuana?

 

During this webinar, we will provide an overview of the rules state-by-state as they exist today. We will cover the employer limitations and the states where they exist. We will provide suggestions on the step’s employers might take to avoid the pitfalls that now exist.

 

Learning objectives:

 

  • Review of the current state of medical marijuana
  • Discuss the state law differences
  • Review recent Court decisions
  • Discuss the three key legislative decisions (New York City, Nevada, and Illinois)

Part Two: Cannabidiol (CBD) Use and the Workplace

October 8, 2019 - 2:00PM to 3:00PM

 

What is CBD? How is it different from marijuana? If an employee uses it will they get high? Will they test positive on a workplace drug test? How does the new Farm Bill impact the legalization of CBD?

 

Eighteen states have authorized the use of cannabidiol - CBD. We will explain what the rules are in these states. We will discuss how and if at all they impact the workplace. We will cover the Farm Bill and the evolving federal government position towards CBD. How does legalizing hemp impact the workplace?

  • Explain how CBD differs from Marijuana
  • Does CBD get you high?
