The ACEC/MA HR, Safety, and Risk Management Forums will be holding another joint session on Wednesday, June 19 from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM at VHB. Please join Debra Dyleski-Najjar, Esq. for this two-hour discussion where she will review issues that arise in the workplace relating to medical and recreational marijuana, as well as the recent removal of Cannabidiol (CBD) from Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Discussion will include:
While marijuana remains classified as a Schedule I substance under the federal CSA, the U.S. Department of Justice recently removed CBD from the CSA and approved a new drug containing CBD. This is developing and rapidly evolving area of the law. It will be important for employers to remain abreast of developments in their own states and to carefully review workplace policies, including drug testing programs.
Debra Dyleski-Najjar, Esq. is president and founder of the Najjar Employment Law Group, P.C., and has been practicing law for over thirty-five (35) years. She is a frequent speaker at occupational health medical conferences on the legal issues relating to marijuana in the workplace and drug testing considerations.
RSVP to Monica Chapman by Friday, June 14th if you plan to attend. Thank you.
