Webinar attendees will get answers to pressing questions like:
Are employers required to accommodate the use, possession or sale of marijuana on the jobsite in these states?
  • What changes, if any, should companies make to their drug testing policies?
  • What legal rights do employers have to sanction employees who use marijuana off-the-clock?
  • How can federal construction contractors comply with federal drug-free workplace laws without running afoul of state law? and
  • What are the safety implications, and how can employers protect workers on the jobsite?
