Medical Marijuana and Other Prescriptions in the Workplace

Duration: 90 Minutes
We all have medical issues from time to time and sometime we need something over the counter or stronger that is prescribed by a physician. Though, the use of prescription drug is quite legal, the warning on the label always mentions not to operate heavy machinery while taking such medications. The risks are loud and clear. So, when can you as an employer regulate something that might be completely legal? When can an employer require an employee to disclose his/her medications and what an employer needs to do?

Why Should you Attend
At one time, employers easily terminated employees for being "under the influence of marijuana." While marijuana remains an illegal drug in the United States, many states have "legalized" it for both recreational and medicinal purposes. Given an employers' obligation to accommodate disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act, can an employer continue to enforce drug policies against employees' use? What about state laws that protect employees' lifestyle.
