As drug laws evolve from state to state, employers are put in a Catch 22 that could leave them vulnerable to lawsuits, penalties and many other risks. Your state may say marijuana is legal with a prescription, but your employee handbook is clear: cannabis use is strictly prohibited. 

On top of that, of course, is that selling and using drugs is a federal crime. Legal departments, outside counsel and employers have to stay ahead of the many issues that these developing laws can present. Join us for a practical review of employment law in the age of drug reform, as our experienced panel shares tips and insights for staying within the law. Including:

 

  • How do new drug laws impact company policies?
  • How has the issue played out in the courts?
  • What are the risks employers face?
  • Are there any companies, firms or agencies that are successfully navigating this situation?
  • How can disabled employees be accommodated when they have prescriptions?
  • Is there any official guidance from regulatory agencies?
  • How can employers comply with conflicting federal, state and local drug laws?
