HR Hot Topic: Marijuana and the Workplace

Description

Medical marijuana is legal in more than half the states and the District of Columbia (D.C.), and the recreational use of marijuana is legal in many. Yet, federal law still identifies marijuana as an illegal drug. In this course, you will learn about the importance of creating and communicating clear workplace policies that address employee drug use. You will also learn to identify signs that an employee might be impaired and how to address those concerns when they come up. You will have the opportunity to explore the legal status of marijuana in your state.
