[Webinar] Marijuana, E-Cigarettes and Other Smoky Things
In 2014, we hosted a webinar with Bill Current, Director of the Annual Survey of Drug Testing Industry Trends, which discussed key considerations for establishing a random drug testing program. In case you missed it, you can view the webinar recording here. Currently, there are over 20 states that have legalized medical marijuana and voters in Colorado and Washington State have legalized recreational pot. When it comes to the workplace, marijuana drug testing policies are not so straight-forward among the ever-changing legal landscape.
On Wednesday, August 12, 2015, PreCheck hosted a webinar with guest speakers from the Fisher & Phillips employment law firm, titled "Marijuana, E-Cigarettes and Other Smoky Things."
The one-hour webinar session is presented by guest speakers A. Kevin Troutman, Partner, and Mauro Ramirez, Associate, from the Fisher & Phillips Houston office. Our Fisher & Phillips employment law subject matter experts discuss whether the shift in some states' laws regarding marijuana use change employers' substance abuse workplace policies.
What You'll Learn From The Webinar:
- Should employers conduct drug testing, and under what circumstances?
- E-Cigarettes: Do you need to update your policy to account for his new technology?
- And More!
