Impact of Pharmaceuticals in the Workplace: From Cannabis to Cognition Enhancement

Event Details
October 2018
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET

Please join us for the second session in our webinar series: The Future of Human Resources: Cutting Edge Issues for Every Employer. The use of pharmaceuticals in the workplace has become an increasingly difficult issue in the human resource and employment law field. State legalization of marijuana, for medical purposes, recreational purposes, or both, impacts all industries and workplaces. This leaves employers to grapple with what they are required to permit employees to do, what internal changes must be made and how to be proactive in an area where there is often little to no legal guidance.

This webinar covers the following topics related to these issues:

  • State legalization of marijuana for medical and/or recreational purposes

  • Federal law regarding marijuana use

  • Legal implications of employee use of marijuana (accommodation issues, medical leave issues, costs to employers, employer policies)

  • Cognition enhancement drugs in the workplace
