The Marijuana Dilemma: What Employers Should Know and What They Can Do About It William Current, President

Marijuana seems to be in the headlines more than ever. There's real pot, synthetic pot and even “legal” pot. One of the most controversial and confusing issues facing employee screening providers and employers is what to do in states with "legal marijuana" laws. As of November 6, eighteen (18) states plus the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws and two of these states have legalized the “recreational” use of marijuana. To complicate matters even further, there's a growing trend toward the use of synthetic cannabinoids (or “fake marijuana”). In this insightful presentation, participants will learn about the various state laws pertaining to marijuana, real, fake or legal, and how those laws affect the workplace. They will also learn what rights employers have and what they can do with positive marijuana drug test results when the donor claims to have used the drug legally.

For years some people thought drug testing was illegal, but it’s actually never been illegal. Today, all 50 states allow drug testing, although some prohibit certain types of drug testing while others place specific regulations on how it is conducted. The challenge is to understand the law as it applies to your company. This presentation will focus on the most common issues relative to state drug-testing laws: random testing, the use of medical review officer services, and state laws that offer financial or legal incentives to conduct drug testing such as workers’ compensation premium discounts.

Most sophisticated employers – especially those with employees in safety-sensitive positions – already recognize that drug testing is appropriate, even necessary. But who should be tested, and under what conditions? There are a great variety of drug-testing alternatives in this regard, and employers’ policies can vary a great deal. Has your company fully considered the alternatives? Does it recognize the advantages – and disadvantages – of each? Should you be considering expansion or refinement of your drug-testing program? This session, presented by Mark A. de Bernardo, a leading legal expert in the field of workplace drug testing and substance-abuse prevention, will help you answer those questions and give your company a provocative look at whether its policy is right and/or can be improved, and the 14 options for when, who, and why to drug test.

Many companies test for only the SAMHSA-5 required drugs (amphetamines, cocaine metabolite, marijuana, opiates, and PCP) whether the testing is DOT mandated or not. However there is growing interest in other drugs as well.

Companies are increasing choosing to test for barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methadone, and/or propoxyphene. There is also increasing concern with the abuse of drugs such as ecstasy and oxycodone. This web seminar will discuss the abuse of these drugs as well as symptoms, dangers and detection times so that your company can make an informed decision about which drugs of abuse should be included in your testing program.
