Medical Marijuana in the Workplace: What Employers Need to Know
Nov. 1, 2017
When the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment (AMMA) was passed in the fall of 2016, it appeared to create more questions than answers for employers. The AMMA prohibits employees from ingesting marijuana or coming to work "under the influence" of marijuana. Yet the AMMA failed to address key issues for employer compliance, such as defining "under the influence."
Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon, & Galchus, P.C. recognized these employer compliance issues, and played a key role in drafting a bill to clarify the employment provisions of the AMMA. On March 29, 2017, the Governor signed the bill into law. The new law provides guidance to employers seeking to comply with the AMMA while also providing a safe workplace for employees and the public.
In this webinar, we discuss what rights the new law affords to employers with regard to the substance abuse policies and drug testing.
