Marijuana, Opioids and State Laws – What HR Teams Need to Know

Date: March 27th, 2018
Presenters: Laura Randazzo and Bill Judge

About this Webinar:
A growing number of states have or are planning to legalize marijuana for medical or recreational use. At the same time, many are also dealing with the opioid epidemic plaguing the country.

Many states limit adverse employment action for medical marijuana use, and in Maine, employers can’t discriminate against an employee for off-duty marijuana use. As a result, employers are faced with complex challenges related to state human rights issues, state compliance issues and the increasing cost of noncompliance.

Arm yourself with the most up-to-date information on drug testing and compliance during our new webinar Drug Testing: The Impact to State Laws and Employers on March 27 at 12 p.m. Central.

Hosts Laura Randazzo, VP of Compliance at CareerBuilder Employment Screening, and Bill Judge, attorney and co-founder of Encompass Compliance Corp, will discuss how these issues impact HR teams and offer practical solutions for being prepared.
