Employers need to decide how they will respond to medical marijuana before the system to recommend and dispense it is fully operational on September 8, 2018. To give insight into this important decision, we’re offering a presentation to
- raise awareness of business and operational issues from legalization under Ohio H.B. 523
- increase understanding of the related drug-free workplace program issues for employers and employees
- review key decisions that need to be made – particularly relating to policy, operations and employee/supervisor awareness
