A Trending News video from Employment Law This Week®:
Illinois just legalized recreational marijuana, effective January 1, 2020. This presents challenges for employers, but there is a way to #DUEIT. Illinois employers should do the following:
- Discuss how your company wants to treat marijuana
- Update your drug-screening policies
- Establish a written procedure for employees to contest a related disciplinary decision
- And use Impairment Training to help supervisors and managers identify signs and symptoms of impairment
Illinois employers: As recreational marijuana becomes legal, remember to just #DUEIT.
