Two things are clear:

1) Accidents in the workplace happen, and they can be expensive, and

2) the legality of marijuana in many states is complicating the common practice of post-accident drug testing.

Many marijuana-friendly laws place restrictions on employers when it comes to taking adverse employment action when someone tests positive after an accident as well as in other circumstance. A 2019 survey indicates that a significant number of employers are confused about their rights to conduct drug testing of applicants and employees, with some going so far as to eliminate marijuana from their drug testing panel. Is that necessary? Can employers still test for marijuana? Can they conduct post-accident drug testing? And what happens when someone tests positive?  What rights do employers still have?

This webinar will review today’s most pressing questions regarding drug testing for marijuana and employers’ rights in post-accident testing situations. Further, it will provide guidance on how comply with legal marijuana laws while continuing to use post-accident drug testing to maintain a safe and drug-free workplace.
