CalChamber to Host Live Webinar on Drug-Free Workplaces

Recorded Webinar Available at the CalChamber Store

The California Chamber of Commerce will discuss what Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, means for California employers and their current drug policies during a live webinar on April 20.

“When reviewing existing policies or creating new ones, make sure your policy clearly states the company’s position on drugs in the workplace, including marijuana,” asserts Erika Frank, webinar co-presenter and CalChamber executive vice president, legal affairs.

The challenges facing employers won’t be maintaining drug-free workplace policies and practices, but rather properly communicating and consistently enforcing these policies and practices—now that adults can legally use marijuana for recreational purposes.

CalChamber employment law experts will help clear any haziness employers may have about drug use and the workplace. Topics include:

  • What Proposition 64 means for employers.
  • When and how drug-testing is permitted in California, including pre-employment and reasonable suspicion testing.
  • Implementing and enforcing drug-free workplace policies.
  • Supervisor training.
  • Best practices.
