We are pleased to present a regular series of complimentary programs to brief you on the trends and hot topics brewing in the developing legal world of medical cannabis. Our first program in the series will be a webinar titled "Medical Marijuana, Employees, and You" on April 29, 2015 at 12:00 pm CT.
In Illinois and the other 23 states including D.C. that have enacted medical cannabis laws, facilities are being built and bought, vendor relationships established, and employees hired. Cannabis industry employers are operating in an unprecedented hiring environment, and will confront many novel legal issues as they build their teams.
Outside of the cannabis industry, business is expected to proceed as though nothing has changed. But even companies in more traditional industries will face challenges as they enter into agreements to work with cannabis industry companies and their employees enroll in regulated medical cannabis programs.
This lively 60-minute webinar will address:
- Cultivation Center/Dispensary employment issues including background checks, paying workers, and complying with MCPP applications;
- Vendors’ and other contractors’ limitations; and
- Employment issues related to registered patients (including federal, state and local disability compliance and leave laws).
We hope you are able to join us!
