Jennings Strouss attorney Chis M. Mason will be presenting a webinar to the Arizona Industry Liaison Group (AZilg): The Employment Law Double-Dose:
1) Peering Through the Smokescreen: Correcting the Misconceptions of Workplace Drug Testing, Safety-Sensitive Positions, and Employee Use of Medical Marijuana – This will focus on the legal requirements and latest developments of workplace drug testing in Arizona. Mr. Mason will help correct pervasive misconceptions and misinformation about the legal requirements, as well as apprise audience participants of the latest case law relative to drug testing requirements, medical marijuana use, and use of the safety-sensitive position designations. Attendees will leave with helpful knowledge needed to assist their organizations on these topics.
2) How the Workplace Reacts to the Coronavirus and What Employers Should Know About New Legislation and Workplace Reactions – While the Coronavirus pandemic has swept into the United States, causing business closures, emergency telecommuting measures, and furloughs, employers face the growing specter of further workforce reductions, and the impact of new legislation and existing legal requirements. This discussion will address the latest developments for workforces and corresponding adjustments, and an overview of legal requirements that might affect your workplace decision-making.
