High Times - Navigating a Drug Free Workplace in Light of Marijuana Use Laws and Restrictions on Post-Accident Testing
Wednesday, September 27, 2023, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET
During this one-hour session, we will provide a broad overview of the various medical marijuana use laws in Virginia. We will discuss the various protections such medical marijuana use laws may provide to employees, and we will provide a roadmap on how to navigate through the difficult issues which arise with an employee using medical marijuana. We will discuss what an employer can and cannot do without running afoul of the Americans with Disability Act or state disability discrimination laws when it learns an employee is a registered medical marijuana user. Lastly, we will spend some time discussing how some post-accident drug testing policies may be in violation of OSHA’s anti-retaliation rule, which went into effect last year.
