  • Navigating Medical and Recreational Marijuana in the Workplace

    In 2016, California voters passed Proposition 64 and began a journey that brought radical changes to state marijuana laws. These changes have left many employers wondering what they must do to adapt to legalized marijuana. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all response to the issue. What may be appropriate for an employer of individuals in safety-sensitive positions may not work for the employer of baristas.

    Accommodating leave and administering the interactive process and disability accommodations can be burdensome and feel like a full-time job, but the law does have limits.

The program will include a discussion of common problems employers and managers face, including at what point an employee's leave becomes an undue hardship and when an employer may safely end the interactive process or consider terminating disabled employees.

    Everyone has strong opinions about politicians and issues, especially during this 2020 election season.

    Even after employees return to work and business operations return to normal, the impact of COVID-19 has changed the workplace for the foreseeable future.

  • 9.15.20

  • A Guide on the Do’s and Don’ts of Drug Testing Applicants and Current Employees

    Drug testing can be a tricky subject for employers, particularly when it comes to testing existing employees! Join Talar Tavlian as she breaks down the do’s and don’ts of workplace drug testing in an informative one-hour webinar. She will explore drug testing applicants and current employees, how to best handle positive drug tests, and other kinds of drug testing results. HR managers will walk away with the knowledge on how to implement a written workplace drug testing policy and what information the policy should include.

  • Steps to negotiating a “labor peace agreement” and “collective bargaining agreement” when dealing with a union

    Fisher Phillips and Cannabiz Team invite you to a one-hour webinar about unions and the cannabis industry.

    With the cannabis workforce booming, many state statutes require cannabis employers enter into Labor Peace Agreements with labor unions as a means to organize the workers into a union. Once organized, cannabis employers must bargain a collective bargaining agreement with the union. In this virtual seminar, Fisher Phillips cannabis labor lawyers will advise how to negotiate a state compliant Labor Peace Agreement, what happens after employees organize a union and how to negotiate a Collective Bargaining Agreement. 

    If you’re a cannabis retailer, distributor, testing laboratory, or cannabis event organizer, you won’t want to miss this informative program. Other cannabis industry partners that will benefit from attending are Professional Employer Organizations (“PEOs”), cannabis consultants, and financial investment firms.  We look forward to helping you gain a better understanding of cannabis employers’ legal obligations and how to address these important labor relations issues.
