Description

Pennsylvania employers continue to navigate the complexities associated with the legalization of medical marijuana in the Commonwealth, reporting significant confusion interpreting the law. It is critical that business leaders and HR professionals understand the scope of the Medical Marijuana Act of 2016 and implement effective strategies to ensure compliance. Top Labor and Employment Law attorney from Steptoe & Johnson PLLC, will discuss:

  • The scope of Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act as it applies to employers
  • Drug testing implications
  • Updating your drug free workplace policies — strategies for intertwining medical marijuana
  • How to handle the hiring situation if someone admits they are using medical marijuana —including what to do if you cannot offer the position for safety reasons — e.g. operating room nurse
  • Strategies to monitor employees’ medical marijuana use in the workplace
  • Recent court cases that impact how businesses should manage medical marijuana
  • Considerations if Pennsylvania legalizes recreational marijuana

Time permitting, the speaker will answer questions from participants following his presentation.
