Marijuana HR Policy & Best Practices: Handling Employee Medical & Recreational Use


Do your HR policies address marijuana use and impairment – on and off the job? Is your hospice or home care company prepared for legalized marijuana? While marijuana use remains illegal on the federal level, states are swiftly legalizing medical and recreational marijuana use. To date, 33 states and Washington, D.C. have legalized medical use, and 11 states have approved recreational use. Regardless of where your state stands, now is the time for HR professionals and employers to address the challenges of employee marijuana use.


Effective marijuana HR policies and procedures are at the heart of workplace cannabis management. This webinar is designed to help hospice and home care agencies understand, prepare for, and manage marijuana use in compliance with policy, best practices, and the law. Join us to gain an understanding of policy-related issues and procedures. Learn why and how to implement best practices-based marijuana policy to communicate rules, manage expectations, support productivity, ensure safety, and comply with federal and state laws. As the march toward nationwide legalization continues, don’t leave cannabis compliance to chance. Attend this program to learn the ABCs of evolving laws and effective marijuana HR policy and procedures.
