Marijuana and the Workplace
Tuesday October 18, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EDT
With more states than ever legalizing medical and recreational marijuana, many employers are confused about the lack of information and the best practices to address it in their workplace. Hear from marijuana and drug testing expert Jo McGuire, Executive Director of the National Drug and Alcohol Screening Association (NDASA) about what employers need to know about documenting signs of impairment, drug testing for marijuana, how Medical Review Officers (MROs) classify a drug test that is positive for THC, employers’ best practices, and workplace resources.
Recovery Friendly Workplaces
Thursday October 20, 2022
11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon EDT
In this session, participants will hear from Samantha Lewandowski, MS , Assistant Program Director for New Hampshire’s Recovery Friendly Workplace (RFW) initiative – an innovative approach to supporting both those in recovery/with substance use disorder (SUD) and employers. Topics to be covered include the historical background of the initiative (including data that supports why this approach is useful and needed), what the RFW designation process and an RFW culture look like, key accomplishments and results (which will include employer and employee perspectives), and how employers can start modeling their workplace to be recovery friendly and get additional resources. Joining Samantha is Melissa Ehrhardt, from CareerSource Pinellas who is Recovery Navigator for people in recovery who are seeking employment.
