Description

To date, 26 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, and eight states (plus D.C.) permit its recreational use. The upshot: As marijuana laws become more liberal and usage becomes more pervasive, hotels and resorts must address the emergent issue of marijuana in the workplace and the legal implications of employee use. Must employers make accommodations for employees with valid marijuana prescriptions, allowing them to use the drug on the job? Hear solutions to these and other accommodation issues, with a look at recent court opinions.
