What's The Risk - Crossing State Lines

Sep 12, 2019 6:30:00 AM

Gibson_CrossingStateLines_graphic848x565Michigan and Illinois recently legalized the recreational use of marijuana. This patchwork of laws, coupled with federal law that still criminalizes marijuana, leaves many employers wondering what they can prohibit and test for in the workplace.

The enactment of marijuana laws is only one of the many recent developments impacting employers’ drug and alcohol policies. For example, the opioid crisis, low unemployment, recent OSHA rules, and the EEOC’s targeting of common policy provisions, all, impact employers’ drug and alcohol policies.  Joins us for a timely event, where we will include perspectives from safety compliance and human resources professionals along with an employment law attorney to understand how it will impact your business.

Topics of Discussion

  • How to manage the evolving risks related to your drug and alcohol policies
  • How state laws legalizing recreational or medical marijuana impact your policies and practices
  • How these other recent developments impact your policies and practices
  • Practical advice for policies and practices to address these issues
  • Overview of state laws legalizing marijuana, focusing on Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio

This FREE event will qualify for 2.0 SHRM credits.
