OSHA Hour: Medical and Recreational Marijuana and the Tightening Labor Market—What Does It Mean for Employers?

State and local laws legalizing recreational and medical marijuana have been “growing like a weed.” More and more of the population (including an increasing percentage of the workforce) is now legally using marijuana. This dynamic is forcing employers to make tough choices regarding whether to continue workplace drug tests that include marijuana or to eliminate those tests in the face of a tight labor pool for skilled employees and other workers. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss the current state of the law and the options employers have to respond. The speakers will also address the practical considerations related to workplace safety and the impact of federal and state OSHA oversight and obligations.
