Marijuana Users in the Workplace
February 7 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am
Although marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, twenty-eight states and the District of Columbia (including Rhode Island) have now passed comprehensive medical marijuana laws and eight states (including Maine and Massachusetts) have legalized the recreational use of marijuana for adults. As the Rhode Island General Assembly now weighs the potential legal and fiscal impacts of full legalization on the Ocean State, the job of HR professionals may become more challenging in the months and years to come.
Join RI SHRM for a wide-ranging panel discussion on the various issues confronting HR professionals as they interact with applicants and employees who use marijuana, either medicinally or recreationally. Our distinguished panel will include members of the General Assembly, representatives from diverse industries and organizations, and subject matter experts in the fields of medical marijuana policy and drug testing.
Breakfast will be served buffet-style beginning at 7:30AM, with the formal program beginning at 8:00AM.
