Now Available Cannabis: Panel Q&A for Employers Presentation

August 22, 2018  CHICO, CA:  Wednesday, August 22nd, the Chico Chamber of Commerce hosted an Expert Panel Q&A for employers on cannabis, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m., in the CARD Community Center located at 545 Vallombrosa Avenue in Chico. The event resulted from the Chico Chamber’s Cannabis Subcommittee work, where findings indicated businesses are navigating workplace safety issues, workplace policies, impairment testing, and other questions related to the outcomes of Proposition 64. Recommended by a Chico-based insurance firm, Holden Law Group was selected by the Chico Chamber to provide this overview and expertise for local businesses. Discussion topics included: Proposition 64 myths and truths for employers, reasonable suspicion, safety-sensitive positions, DOT versus non-DOT requirements, and impairment testing. 

Holden Law Group has generously shared their presentation: Legalized Marijuana Impact on California Employers & Drug Testing Policies.
