Recreational marijuana will become legal under Oregon law on July 1, 2015. The changing legal landscape raises critical questions for labor and management. How can it be determined if an employee is under the influence of marijuana at work? Is urinalysis advisable, and will it be upheld as evidence of intoxication? Does this differ for public and private employees? With the growing social acceptance of marijuana, what effect do employer policies have on recruitment and retention? Panelists will provide both scientific and legal perspectives on these important questions.
The program will occur on January 22, 2015 at the World Trade Center in Mezzanine 2, 3, 4 (121 SW Salmon Street, Portland, OR 97205)
Breakfast will begin at 7:30am, and the panel discussion will begin at 8:00am.
