Attorney Examines Marijuana Use Laws in New Video-on-Demand from Foundation of ASA
ALEXANDRIA, Va.—In a new video-on-demand available from the Foundation of the American Subcontractors Association, attorney Philip J. Siegel, Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Siegel, examines the various medical marijuana use laws around the country and discusses various protections such use laws may provide to employees.
In “High Times—Navigating a Drug Free Workplace in Light of Marijuana Use Laws and Restrictions on Post-Accident Testing,” Siegel provides a roadmap on how to navigate through the difficult issues which arise with an employee using medical marijuana. Siegel also explains what an employer can and cannot do without running afoul of the Americans with Disability Act or state disability discrimination laws when it learns an employee is a registered medical marijuana user. Furthermore, Siegel discusses how some post-accident drug testing policies may be in violation of OSHA’s anti-retaliation rule, which recently went into effect.
“High Times—Navigating a Drug Free Workplace in Light of Marijuana Use Laws and Restrictions on Post-Accident Testing” (Item #8125) is $65 for ASA members and $95 nonmembers. This and other on-demand videos are available through FASA’s Contractors’ Knowledge Depot.
