    Are your employees high? What if they’re stone on their own time? As marijuana has been voted to be legalized in South Dakota, employers face a conundrum – how will marijuana affect our workplaces and should we test for it? The answers have real consequences for applicants, employees, and workplaces. So, what should you do? This session will include some practical considerations and tips on how to handle pot.

    • Identify the legal pitfalls surrounding marijuana in the workplace
    • Develop strategies to handle reasonable accommodation issues that could affect employment decisions
    • Understand obligations of federal contractors and specific regulations with regard to marijuana
    • Learn where changes to policies or drug-testing procedures may need to change due to marijuana
