Nip it in the Bud: Preparing for the Workplace Impact of Marijuana Legalization

Join us as Denis Mahoney discusses the key steps employers can take now to prepare for impact of the legalization and regulation of access to non-medical marijuana legalization. Recreational marijuana isn’t legal yet – but much of the associated stigma with its use is already gone, usage is up, and employers are feeling the workplace effects.
