HR in Hospitality Conference
Dana A. Kravetz presented on “It’s 4:20 p.m. – Time for Your Employees’ Marijuana Break,” at the 2018 HR in Hospitality Conference on Tuesday March 6, 2018 at 1:30 PM.
To date, 26 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, and eight states (plus D.C.) permit its recreational use. The upshot: As marijuana laws become more liberal and usage becomes more pervasive, hotels and resorts must address the emergent issue of marijuana in the workplace and the legal implications of employee use. Must employers make accommodations for employees with valid marijuana prescriptions, allowing them to use the drug on the job? The presentation provided answers to these and other accommodation issues, with a look at recent court opinions.
- Identify important workplace policies regarding marijuana
- Review the evolving law as it pertains to medical marijuana and associated workplace accommodations
- Train managers and supervisors to deal with marijuana use by employees on and off the job
