The Impact of Marijuana Laws, by Mark Perlberg, CEO
More than half of the states in our county currently have laws broadly legalizing marijuana in some form. Given the growing public acceptance of medical or recreational marijuana, employers should be aware of a variety of new workplace issues that could arise. Above all, employers and their legal counsel will need to draft an appropriate marijuana drug policy for their businesses.
Legalized marijuana introduces a host of new questions for the workplace and there aren’t any one-size-fits-all solutions. There are many questions that employers may have including: Am I required to accommodate the use of medical marijuana? What about an employee’s recreational use of marijuana on personal time? What if the employee operates a company vehicle? What if the employee fails a drug test? Oasis Outsourcing is here to help our clients as they evaluate the how to approach to marijuana use in their workplaces.
