The stigma surrounding marijuana use has changed swiftly and dramatically, resulting in societal acceptance and more lenient legislation. As a result of these shifting paradigms, employers are conflicted on whether to test employees for the presence of marijuana, refuse to hire candidates due to marijuana usage, and/or accommodate legal marijuana users. These decisions may result in decisive consequences for employers. This presentation focuses on the legalization of marijuana and what it means for employers and their policies.

NOTE: This event is pre-approved for recertification credit by SHRM (pending approval by HRCI).
