Marijuana is now available in 39 states and nearly 55 million Americans use the drug for recreational or medical purposes. Such widespread use, along with the systemic labor shortage, has led a growing number of companies to abandon pre-employment screens for THC (the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana), or eliminate drug testing altogether. In staffing, conflicting client demands and state regulations create complexity, and a one-size-fits-all policy will no longer do.

In this webinar, Joanna Monroe, co-managing partner with Staffing GC, will dive into the effect of marijuana legalization on the industrial staffing sector and provide business owners with concrete steps to update drug testing policies to meet client needs in a dynamic environment.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • The history of marijuana legalization and current status across the states
  • How marijuana legalization affects the industrial staffing sector
  • Ways to balance client requirements, safety concerns, workers' compensation, and employee rights
  • What to consider when updating a drug policy
