March 26: Webcast - How "Legalize It" Really Works Risks & Insights for Employers & Lawyers When Drug Laws Collide

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. What’s the answer for employers? How do you mitigate risk? 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.
Topics covered will include:
  • 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?
