Event description

Description

“In light of the relatively new law authorizing the use of medical marijuana in Connecticut, employers are confronted with the dilemma of maintaining a safe workplace and complying with the new law’s requirements. Employers, employees, Human Resource officials, union representatives and attorneys may wish to attend this program to learn about the new law and its impact on existing employer policies.

Specifically, the seminar will address:

- the impact of the laws on worksites;

- how the law integrates with existing state and federal drug testing laws;

- how the law integrates with drug testing programs and the requirement to maintain a safe, drug-free
workplace; and

- what employers can do to reduce any risks or additional exposure associated with the new law.

This seminar will be presented by Stephen Lattanzio, Principal Attorney with the Connecticut Labor Department, and will feature appearances by Mr. Matthew Lundquist, MD, MPH, Medical Director, Occupational & Environmental Medicine and Employee Health Services at Middlesex Hospital Outpatient Center, and Ronald Ing, Director of Human Resources & Information Technology for the Town of Stratford. Dr. Lundquist will provide his view of the medical marijuana law as it relates to the actual testing procedures he conducts on a daily basis, and Mr. Ing will provide his perspective of current issues confronting human resource offices. This is a rare opportunity to glean expert advice from medical and human resources professionals in this ever increasingly complicated field.

In Connecticut, over 18,000 Connecticut residents use medical-marijuana to help with specific debilitating medical conditions. This seminar will highlight the workplace issues necessary to strike the balance between employer policies and the use of medical marijuana as permitted by Connecticut law.
