Dancing with Mary Jane-Medical Marijuana in the Workplace Webinar
Accommodating employee medical needs is a confusing process for many employers. Modifying policies and procedures regarding drug testing and reasonable job accommodations is a potentially slippery slope on both sides of the argument. Why you ask? Medical Marijuana.
Marijuana may be the most commonly used illegal drug in the world. The collision between many state laws and federal law over the legal use of marijuana, also known as cannabis, is often a source of heated discussion between employers and employees. While marijuana remains a federally classified Schedule I drug, many state laws allow the use of medical or even recreational marijuana.
