Why should you attend?

The line between legal and illicit drug use, particularly when marijuana is involved has become increasingly blurry. Employers in locations with medical marijuana laws who wish to ensure a safe productive workforce need to know what they can and cannot do, what they must and need not do with respect to employees holding prescriptions for medical marijuana. Are they covered under the ADA/ADAAA? If so, once again, what are –and aren’t—you obligated to do? Taking proactive steps to learn your rights and responsibilities before a question arises is the smart thing to do. This webinar will help you do exactly that.

Faculty - Ms. Janette Levey Frisch

Janette Levey Frisch, Founder of The EmpLAWyerologist Firm, has over 20 years of legal experience, more than 10 of which she has spent in Employment Law. It was during her tenure as sole in-house counsel for a mid-size staffing company headquartered in Central New Jersey, with operations all over the continental US, that she truly developed her passion for Employment Law.
Janette and The EmpLAWyerologist Firm operate under this core belief: It is possible, and it is in an employer’s best interest, to proactively solve workforce challenges before they become problems before they result in lawsuits or steep fines caused by government audits. Janette works with employers on most employment law issues, acting as the Employer’s Legal Wellness Professional — to ensure that employers are in the best position possible to avoid litigation, audits, employee relations problems, and the attendant, often exorbitant costs.
Janette authors the firm’s weekly blog, where you can read each week, in plain English (not legalese) about issues impacting employers today. Janette has written articles on many different employment law issues for many publications, including EEO Insight, Staffing Industry Review, @Law, and Chief Legal Officer. Janette has also spoken and trained on topics, such as Criminal Background Checks in the Hiring Process, Joint Employment, Severance Arrangements, Pre-Employment Screening among many, many others.
