With the passage of Prop. 64, California voters decided to embark on radical changes to state marijuana laws. These changes have left many employers wondering what, if anything, they must do to adapt to the new legal landscape. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all response to the issue. What may be appropriate for an employer of individuals in safety-sensitive positions may not work for the employer of baristas. Join us for an informative seminar, where Anthony will provide an overview of California's medical and recreational marijuana laws as well as the options that employers have to deal with this workplace challenge.
