Weed in the Workplace: Key Legal Considerations When Dealing with Employee Marijuana Use

December 1, 2021 10:45 - 11:45 a.m.

Join us at the Midwest Food Products Association 2021 Convention where we will discuss the current state of marijuana laws in the Midwest and their impact on employers and their workplaces. We will discuss the interplay between federal and state laws, employer challenges particularly during the current labor shortage, and best practices for policies and procedures, including an overview of establishing reasonable suspicion testing protocols and marijuana-related disciplinary actions. Throughout the presentation, we will also answer questions frequently asked by clients, such as:

  • When can employers test applicants and employees for marijuana use? 
  • Do employers have to accommodate an applicant’s or employee’s use of medical marijuana? 
  • Can employers have different testing requirements for certain positions, such as safety sensitive positions? 
  • What happens if an employee resides in a state where marijuana is legal, but works in a state where it is not?
