Seeing Through the Smoke: Marijuana, Changing Laws, and its Impact on the Workplace

In 2016, California joined several other states in legalizing recreational use of marijuana. Proposition 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, legalizes the recreational use of marijuana for adults 21 years of age and older. Companies committed to drug-free workplaces face challenges with contradictory laws and often struggle to understand the actions they are able to take when drugs enter the workplace.

What happens when an employee is caught smoking weed at work? What if a drug test comes up positive for marijuana? Plan to join us at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 20, at Mimi’s Café in Lakewood where you’ll get answers to these questions and more. We’re excited to have Irma Marquez with Marquez Consulting, a Human Resources firm based in the central valley, as our keynote speaker who will weed out the facts. Fluent in both Spanish and English, Irma will provide attendees more information on:

  • Drugs in the Workplace
  • State and Federal Laws Governing Drug Testing
  • Employee Rights Concerning Drug Testing
  • The Drug Free Workplace Program
  • Reasonable Suspicion Testing
  • Contracting with a Testing Facility

Cost to attend this very informative meeting is just $30 for CLCA members and $40 for non-members, which includes dinner and one raffle ticket. There will be lots of great prizes raffled at this event. Additional raffle tickets are available for purchase. Seating is limited. Reserve your stop today! NEW: Click here to register online.
