AGC recently hosted a webinar on the implications of one of the most talked-about state laws sweeping across the country, legalized marijuana and its impact on the construction industry. A recording of the webinar is available in the AGC Bookstore.
During the webinar, Glenn Schlabs, partner with the law firm of Sherman and Howard, LLC, in Colorado Springs, CO, and Shannon Rowley, vice president and director of human resources at MWH Global, a construction firm headquartered in Broomfield, CO, shared information to help construction contractors avoid the legal pitfalls of compliance while effectively communicating with employees.
Schlabs and Rowley discussed the marijuana laws in each of the 20-plus states and the District of Columbia, with decriminalization, legalization, and/or medical marijuana laws. In addition, practical advice was also shared about drug testing policies, state/federal law preemption, drug testing requirements for federal highway contractors and best practices for enforcing policies when employees work in multiple states with differing marijuana laws.
The webinar was pre-approved for 1.5 general recertification credits by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI), the internationally recognized leader in human resource certification.
