Join the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce for a Member Luncheon at Carroll Lutheran Village!
Topic: Marijuana and the Workplace
In the last five years, the number of states that have legalized adult, recreational use of marijuana has nearly tripled. Add to that, states and local jurisdictions enacting laws restricting or limiting when, how and for whom employers may conduct related testing or inquiries.
All this leaves employers pondering how to provide and enforce a safe workplace, require that employees be fit-for-duty, and navigate conflicting federal, state and local mandates.
Join this interactive program as we review Maryland’s new law that took effect July 1, 2023, some of the latest trends, statistics, and challenges impacting employers and employees, along with proactive practices.
