Marijuana in the Workplace: Ethical and Legal Considerations for Employers in Arkansas


Presented by Christopher Hooks, JD, with Robertson, Beasley, Shipley & Robinson, PLLC, Fort Smith AR 


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.  Employers must be more cognizant than ever when drug testing of the legal elements for usage which includes compliance with federal laws such as FMLA and ADA.  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.
