Lost in the Weeds: An Employer’s Guide to Navigating Medical Marijuana in the Workplace


May 25, 2023




Teresa Shaak



The legalization of medical marijuana has left many employers uncertain about their legal rights and duties regarding on- and off-site use of marijuana. In Pennsylvania particularly, the case law is still developing, and it can be unclear how the medical marijuana laws interact with other employment law requirements in the state. This webinar will explore the current legal landscape for medical marijuana use in the workplace and provide practical advice for areas including workers’ compensation, drug testing, employment discrimination, and best practices for creating a safe work environment.

Whether you’re managing reporters and photographers, ad reps or circulation/distribution employees, you should attend this session!
