State-level legalization of cannabis for medical and adult (i.e., recreational) use has had a substantial impact on the business community. Companies today are tasked with balancing evolving cultural views on cannabis use, which impact the talent pool, and the laws and regulations that govern what employers can and cannot do when it comes to their workforce. This program, which brings together business leaders and legal professionals to share best practices and tips to avoid pitfalls, will explore:
- How a changing landscape is impacting hiring practices;
- The related policies and procedures that companies should be considering; and
- The thorny issues companies face when navigating conflicting Federal and State laws.
Join us to learn what your company needs to be doing today and what it can be doing to prepare for future changes. We hope you can stay for a cocktail reception in the Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr offices in the same building at 4:00 p.m.
Continuing Legal Education (State of Illinois) as well as HRCI and SHRM accreditation is currently pending for this program.
