Speaker: Bryan Meek

In November, Ohio legalized recreational marijuana, and we expect recreational sales to begin in about 1 month. Employers need to act now to ensure they understand the legal rights affiliated with the legalization and to understand how they might update their employee policies to account for the widespread use of marijuana by employees. This presentation aims to provide employers with essential insights into navigating this evolving landscape.

Key topics covered will include:

  1. Legislative Framework: Understanding Ohio's laws and regulations surrounding recreational marijuana use, including possession/use legal responsibilities/rights for employers.
  2. Employer Rights and Responsibilities: Exploring the implications for workplace policies, drug testing protocols, and employee rights in relation to marijuana usage.
  3. Safety and Productivity Concerns: Addressing concerns related to workplace safety, impairment detection, and maintaining productivity in light of legalized recreational marijuana.
  4. Legal Compliance and Best Practices: Guidance on adapting existing HR policies, compliance with federal regulations, and strategies for fostering a safe and inclusive work environment.
  5. Q&A Session: An opportunity for employers to seek clarification on specific concerns and gain practical advice for implementing policy changes.
