When Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) comes to the workplace

Come join us as a panel of experts tackles this emerging and edgy topic.  

There are a lot of gray areas when it comes to medical cannabis and the workplace, especially when state laws differ from the federal government and/or state-to-state.  HR leaders need to consider a lot of factors when creating policies, especially those associated with pre-employment drug testing or ADA accommodations.   They also need to be prepared to handle a conversation with a prospective or current employee who disclosed the fact that they have a Medical Cannabis Card.  The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes is not recognized by the federal government, yet medical cannabis is legal in California due to the passage of the Compassionate Use Act in 1996.  

One the many complications of medical cannabis in the workplace pertains to employers who accept federal funds. These employers must sign a contract with the federal government agreeing to a drug-free workplace, which again brings up the issue of the federal government not recognizing cannabis' medicinal purpose.  Also, schools and colleges must be certified drug-free environments to receive any federal funding.  

However, doctors who issue medical cannabis prescriptions believe medical cannabis should be treated as any other prescription drug and hope to educate employers on this topic.  

Join us and our panel of experts, which include lawyers, a doctor who specializes in pain management, a Human Resources leader and a representative from Grasspit .

Objectives:
  • Explore this emerging topic and better understand a variety of perspectives to consider as an HR professional
  • Better understand how to navigate discussions with prospective and current employees on this topic
  • Learn about the trends associated with cannabis in the workplace
  • Learn how other employers are successfully navigating this emerging landscape
