A recent decision from the highest court in Massachusetts indicates that, in “medical marijuana” states that also have state disability protections, employers may be required to consider making reasonable accommodations to employees who use medical marijuana off-premises and outside working hours. Although the decision applies only in Massachusetts, it’s likely that other jurisdictions will follow.
Join Ellen Kearns, head of Constangy’s Boston Office, and Robin Shea, editor of the blog Employment & Labor Insider, for an interactive presentation that includes the following:
- Background on the medical marijuana/reasonable accommodation controversy
- The groundbreaking “marijuana accommodation” decision in Barbuto v. Advanced Sales and Marketing
- Practical suggestions for employers trying to maintain safe workplaces while meeting their reasonable accommodation obligations
