NEW YORK, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced that registration is open for a webinar to examine the applicable laws, legal concerns and complex compliance issues related to opioid and marijuana use by employees in the workplace.

With the opioid crisis still peaking across America and marijuana becoming lawful in a growing number of states for both medicinal and recreation purposes, employers are often at a loss when it comes to staying abreast of sometimes conflicting compliance requirements. On top of these factors, employers must navigate a patchwork of federal and state laws that may apply, as well as employee needs for accommodations or leave to deal with addiction or other drug abuse issues – creating a quagmire of potential compliance issues for employers.

The webinar examines the complex problems and confusing issues employers may face when enacting and enforcing employee policies in this realm and offers legal and practical advice to help manage the workplace impact of the opioid crisis and the legalization of marijuana.

The session will be moderated by Pamela Wolf, Senior Employment Law Analyst at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. Wolf will be joined by acclaimed employment attorneys John Doran, Member, Sherman & Howard LLC; Eric B. Meyer, Partner, FisherBroyles LLP; and Kathryn J. Russo, Principal, Jackson Lewis P.C.

Specific topics discussed include:

  • Current federal and state laws that may apply
  • What you need to know about drug testing
  • Employee assistance programs
  • Effective workplace policies and procedures
