What should you do if an employee tests positive for marijuana? How do you comply with competing laws and maintain a safe working environment?

The use of medical marijuana in the workplace creates a myriad of challenges for employers, particularly when it comes to managing employee safety and workers compensation claims.

And as the 'weed at work' issue widens to include consumption of edible marijuana, it's even tougher for employers to enforce drug-free workplace policies.

With twenty-eight states and the District of Columbia legalizing medical marijuana, and eight states legalizing recreational use, it’s imperative for employers to be aware of the rules and regulations surrounding this confusing issue.

  • Federal law vs. state law: Which takes precedence?
