Marijuana and the Workplace: Managing the Impact of Legalization & Policy Development

Marijuana and the Workplace: Managing the Impact of Legalization & Policy Development
The topic of marijuana access and its use is sensitive, complex and highly polarized with issues and implications for health and safety. With the projected legalization of recreational marijuana fast approaching, employers have questions about how to respond to this new landscape.
Item #:  20112

Policy is the foundation of a drug-safe workplace.  Policy missteps are unfortunately easy to make and often costly. This workshop will cover the essential components of a legally sound policy, the key organizational questions that need to be answered in this space, when to update your policy and when to replace it, as well as peer to peer dialogue focused on change management in your business. Policy is not just about paper; it’s about people and changing views and workplace culture.

This comprehensive workshop will help employers understand the coming change and its implication. How can the differences between marijuana and alcohol be accounted for in policy, practice and culture? The interactive content will help fast track your organization through this otherwise painful process and will leave you feeling clear, confident and ready for change. Participants who complete the policy development questionnaire during the seminar will receive a tailored policy draft for their path forward.
