    TOPIC:   Dealing with the Hazy Issue of Marijuana in the Workplace

    SPEAKER: Chad Sorenson, President HR Florida State Council and President and Founder of Adaptive HR Solutions.

    HRCI Credits:   1 SHRM and HRCI credit

    Summary: As if changes in the employment laws weren’t enough, now HR professionals have to deal with differing state laws as marijuana legalization becomes widespread across the US. We will look at the impact of medical and recreational marijuana on Drug-Free Workplace policies, the Americans with Disability Act, federal contractors, workers covered under DOT regulations and more.
