Event Description:
This month's topic: "ARE NEW POT LAWS DRIVING EMPLOYERS TO DRINK?"

In November, 2016, California adopted Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act.  This statute legalized the use of marijuana in California by those over the age of 21.  This law, combined with numerous other laws requiring employers to “reasonably accommodate” employees with disabilities  have left employers scratching their heads in confusion about what, if anything, can be done to address the increasingly serious problem of drug use, specifically including marijuana use, in the workplace.


This ongoing seminar series is being conducted by veteran Petaluma labor & employment attorney, Jay Putnam. Putnam, has advised employers exclusively, in labor matters for over 36 years. He hopes to provide local business owners and managers with a solid, working understanding of California labor law, as a means of helping them avoid the often crippling cost and disruption caused by lawsuits resulting from a misunderstanding of applicable legal requirements.

Members are encouraged to bring their questions.  Putnam says he intends to conduct the seminars as "informal, working sessions, where people can bring their lunch and their questions and leave each month with important information that will immediately improve their business operations.
