Michigan just became the ninth state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana and employers have been left with a lot of questions.
What can you do and not do from a legal standpoint?
What are your rights as an employer?
To help answer those questions, Don Lawless, labor and employment law attorney from Barnes & Thornburg LLP in Grand Rapids, will provide a comprehensive break down of the new law.
Mr. Lawless will discuss the inherent issues for employers regarding legalized recreational marijuana including:
• Best policies and practices you can implement within the workplace to protect yourself and your employees.
• The impact on other laws and regulations on the recreational use of marijuana, such as:
-ADA and state disability laws
