Constangy partner Keya Denner presented at the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education on Nov. 21.
The presentation, “Are you High? - Representing Employers Who Suspect an Employee is Impaired,” discussed New Jersey employers’ continued ability to drug test and respond to employees who report to work impaired, especially in light of New Jersey’s new recreational cannabis law, and the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission’s most recent guidance on this topic.
Denner is an experienced litigator who has been practicing labor and employment law for almost 20 years. Few attorneys nationwide match his expertise in the area of legal cannabis and its impact on the workplace. At his previous firms, Denner founded and chaired cannabis law practice groups, and has a deep understanding of the various laws and issues surrounding the country’s rapidly expanding legal cannabis industry. He has counseled Fortune 500 companies in the retail, hospitality, and global logistics spaces to create compliant policies and better understand the ever-changing legal landscape brought about by the legalization of cannabis across the United States.
