Marijuana Laws Influencing the Workplace: How Employers Can Stay Ahead
Does it still make sense to test for marijuana? After all, 16 states and the District of Columbia have fully legalized pot and 33 states have legalized medicinal marijuana. In some states, those laws also place certain conditions on employers making it more challenging to test for marijuana. Yet, drug testing for marijuana is still legal in all 50 states and has never been more important. Pot use is approaching record levels, more applicants and employees are testing positive, and employers who stop testing for the drug face exposure to legal liability that makes doing so a very unwise business decision.

In this presentation, Bill Current, founder of the Current Consulting Group and the author of Why Drug Testing? will discuss state marijuana laws and their impact on the workplace. He will present three compelling reasons why employers should continue testing for marijuana and outline specific things they can include in their drug testing policy to avoid running afoul of restrictive state laws. He will also share a simple-to-use, highly effective ROI model that helps employers understand the value of testing for marijuana.

Key Topics:
- Understanding current trends in state
marijuana laws & legislation

marijuana will always make sense

positive
- Addressing marijuana in a company drug
testing policy
