Aside from playing a vital role in ensuring that a cannabis business is not violating labor/employment law(s), attorneys representing cannabis businesses face unique HR-related issues. For example, how should a business define, determine, and regulate cannabis impairment in the workplace given the lack of scientific consensus in regards to cannabis and impairment? Can/should cannabis companies drug test for THC? State law(s) may provide guidance on these issues, but they don’t always provide clear-cut answers. Labor and employment attorneys will play a critical role in navigating the labyrinth of relevant law in light of the unique issues cannabis presents.
