With new California marijuana testing laws set for 2024, and the more relaxed attitude (by some) toward marijuana, what are the best practices for employers? What about federal contractors? When should you test? What should you test for? Should you test applicants? If they test positive, what should you do? Has anything changed as far as reasonable suspicion, post-accident, and safety sensitive testing? Find out all the answers to these questions and more at this informative and fast-paced seminar being presented by attorney Jonathan Fraser Light.

Topics covered will include the following:

  • To test or not to test, that is the question...
  • When is testing required?
  • Testing for THC vs. metabolites of THC (what’s the difference?)
  • Treat alcohol = marijuana? Maybe yes, maybe no
  • Caught using or carrying, what do you do?
  • “Last Chance Agreements” – when are they appropriate?
  • Reasonable suspicion, post-accident and safety sensitive testing
  • Pre-employment screening – include marijuana?
