SEPTEMBER 2015 – Will Klatte served as a Panel Speaker at Professional Liability Underwriting Society (“PLUS”) Southern California Chapter Program & Debate on “Substance Abuse & Marijuana in the Workplace.” He discussed the interaction between state and federal employment laws and laws authorizing medical marijuana use. He noted that five states (Nevada, Arizona, Minnesota, New York, and Delaware) expressly provide some level of workplace protection for medical marijuana users. He cautioned that even in states where accommodation is not required, employers may be forced to defend whether their actions constituted a legitimate enforcement of drugfree workplace policies or unlawful discrimination based on the underlying medical condition.
