Employers in Arkansas must now accommodate employees who legally carry and use marijuana products as a bonafide treatment option prescribed by a doctor. In addition to medical marijuana, efforts to legalize recreational marijuana are ongoing.

In this lunch-and-learn session, Christopher Hooks will review the current legal climate in Arkansas and share best practices for ongoing legal compliance while upholding the rights of the employees and employers.
