Marijuana in the Workplace: High Priorities for Employers

Presented by Jean Roque, Kyle Abraham, and Pamela Mack

This session will equip employers to understand applicable laws and assess how drug policies can be adapted for their workplace.

  • Increase your understanding of today’s drug screening technologies and how to select the right approach for your workplace.
  • Learn how to detect and contend with employees who may be under the influence of marijuana.
  • Identify areas that may influence or even dictate your company’s stance on drug policies.
