*Just about everything; enough to fill a 90-minute presentation that I’m giving tomorrow.

Yes, I’ll be presenting “Medical Marijuana: What’s the Buzz?” in at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) 22nd annual Examining Conflicts in Employment Laws (EXCEL) Training Conference in Atlanta, GA. EXCEL is the premier national training conference for federal and private sector EEO managers, supervisors, practitioners, HR professionals, attorneys and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) specialists.

We’re going to cover:

  • Marijuana – Types, History and Statistics
  • Employer Challenges
  • Federal versus State-leave Treatment
  • Employer’s Obligation to Accommodate &
    Provide leave for Medical Marijuana Use
  • Drug Testing, Workplace Policies and Other Medical
    Marijuana Considerations
  • Best Practices

If you’re attending the conference, please stop by and say hello.

If you’re not at the conference, it’s ok, we can still be friends. And to prove it, here is a copy of my slide deck.
