Opioids and Marijuana: Coping with a Workplace Quagmire®

 Wednesday 22 May1pm - 2pm US EDT

With the opioid crisis still peaking across America and marijuana becoming lawful in a growing number of states, employers are often at a loss when it comes to staying abreast of sometimes conflicting compliance requirements.
Organizations are also trying to implement appropriate workplace policies as avenues of assistance for staff who need help.
Add to that the patchwork of federal and state laws that may apply, and employees’ need for accommodations or leave to deal with addiction or other drug abuse issues, and employers understandably feel they are facing a quagmire of potential compliance problems.
A panel of all-star attorneys will share their insights into both the pitfalls and best practices for dealing with issues related to employee opioid and marijuana use in the workplace.
The roundtable discussion will address several key topics, including: Current federal and state laws that may apply; What you need to know about drug testing; Employee assistance programs; Effective workplace policies and procedures
