Lisa Nagele-Piazza on Marijuana in the Workplace
With recreational and medical use of marijuana now legal in over 30 states, pot use has emerged as a complicated topic that raises many thorny questions for both employers and employees: Should employers still test for it? If so, what are the circumstances that they should? What sorts of accommodations should employers make for what sorts of employees? Here to answer these questions and many more is SHRM’s own Lisa Nagele-Piazza. Lisa is SHRM Online's Senior Legal Editor, covering federal, state and local employment law developments. She closely follows marijuana legislation at the state level and its impact on the workplace, as well as drug testing rules.
