In the Weeds - Navigating Medical Marijuana in the Workplace

  • 21 Nov 2019
  • 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
  • RC's Restaurant, 330 East 135th Street, Kansas City, MO 34145

Please join us for the November Luncheon

to listen as Lauren Sobaski helps clear the fog

on weed in the workplace.

Now that Missouri joined as the 33rd state to have legalized marijuana in some form, employers must evaluate potential workplace issues and take steps to ensure a productive and safe workforce. Between federal laws, state laws, safety regulations and the current administration’s stand on marijuana laws, there is a lot that employers need to know. 

The South Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and Fisher Phillips invites you to attend our meeting that will address:

Status of Missouri marijuana laws and how those affect your business?

The legal climate of marijuana across the United States?

Answer common employer questions:

o     Can employees consume marijuana at work?

o     Can I drug test applicants and employees?

o     Do I have to let employees work while high?

o     How do medical marijuana laws affect leave laws – FMLA, ADA, workers’ compensation?

This program will navigate the legal minefield of legalized marijuana to help identify the best employment practices for your company.
