Effects of Marijuana Legalization on the Workplace
This session will examine the interaction between the state and federal laws, your license, your general liability insurance and workerâ€™s compensation insurance policies. We will analyze the complexities of an employeeâ€™s medicinal use of marijuana to treat a condition which qualifies under the Americans with Disabilities Act as a protected disability and your employment policy. We will work to create a comprehensive employment policy that protects the business, the license and administration and explore ways to further the conversation with state licensing agencies to provide clear direction for your programs. Finally, we will discuss the interplay between Mandated Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect and parentâ€™s use of marijuana to apply the regulations and laws to individual situations that may occur with parents in your center.
