THE EVER-CHANGING RULES ON MEDICAL
MARIJUANA (AND, PERHAPS, LEGAL MARIJUANA)
A Human Resources
time-traveler from 2010 might be surprised to see how rapidly the laws
regarding marijuana have changed in the workplaces.
States like Massachusetts have now legalized marijuana while other states, like
Connecticut, have allowed for medical marijuana. What’s an employer to do with
the rules changing seemingly year by year?
Shipman & Goodwin LLP Employment Law Attorney Daniel Schwartz will help
break down the current status of the rules for employers in Connecticut with an
eye towards the future as well. Issues regarding hiring, discipline,
termination, and drug testing will all be covered.
Daniel A. Schwartz represents employers in a broad spectrum of
employment law matters such as employment discrimination, restrictive
covenants, human resources, retaliation and whistle blowing, data privacy and
wage and hour issues. He has extensive
trial and litigation experience in both federal and state courts. Dan is also the author of the Connecticut
Employment Law blog, one of the most widely read blogs of its kind in the
nation. Learn more about Dan HERE
