    Presenter: David Harlow, Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC

    Vermont employers have many questions about how legal “recreational” marijuana will affect employment practices, policies and rules.  David’s presentation will focus on how employers (and HR professionals) can and should respond to the upcoming changes to Vermont law on marijuana possession and use. Using examples and audience interaction, David’s presentation aims to guide employers through thorny legal and HR issues that relate to marijuana, including:

    •           Applications and drug testing procedures;

    •           Recognizing and responding to signs of impairment on the job;

    •           Employee discipline / discharge related to substance abuse;

    •           Medicinal marijuana and disability-related implications;

    •           Responding to employee behavior “outside of work”;

    •           What to tell your managers, employees and others about marijuana;

    •           And much more!

    David’s presentations are intended to be interactive and open to questions, so please come ready to participate.
