Jo will describe the value a workplace drug and alcohol policy provides to the company as she takes the audience through each critical section of a basic policy, explaining why it matters, what questions they need to ask themselves, how they should use their policy to help create a culture of safety and what mis-steps to avoid as she shares stories of what challenges employers and managers face when things go very wrong.

The participant will have a clear understanding of the critical components of a sound policy that keeps employee needs in mind.

Why you should Attend: Changing cannabis laws mean your workplace policy MUST be updated and not just once - but on a regular basis. Your policy is a living, breathing document.

What you think you know about good workplace policies and legal marijuana is probably out-of-date. Learn the facts, best practices, what NOT to do and how to avoid getting sued for discrimination. Jo has addressed this topic for over 10 years in her native Colorado and around the world as a leading expert.

  • Overview of recent court decisions, trending in favor of the employee
  • Why a workplace drug and alcohol policy matters
  • The importance of policy familiarity
  • Components of a working policy & options in tailoring it for your workplace
  • How to achieve successful outcomes for the company & the employee when the policy is enforced properly

Who Will Benefit:
  • HR Professionals
  • Small Business Owners
  • Safety & Compliance Professionals
  • Job-site Managers having direct oversight of employees
  • Designated Employer Representatives who manage workplace drug testing
