Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce presents, the legalization of recreational cannabis in CT webinar

Submitted by Sierra Lopez.

(Middletown, CT). Maureen Westbrook, Chairwoman of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce, announced that the Chamber will host a webinar on The Legalization of Recreational Cannabis in Connecticut which will take place on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 via Zoom at 9:00 a.m. and will last until 10:30 a.m.

This webinar will be presented by Attorneys Megan Carannante and Zachary Zeid of Pullman & Comely, LLC.

They will discuss the legalization of recreational cannabis, which has opened up an exciting new market in Connecticut. However, as with any new industry, there are a host of regulations and legal issues to navigate. For Connecticut employers, the new law imposes some new restrictions on employers and offers some protections for employees.

This webinar will include the following:

  • Guidance on updating drug free workplace policies and employee handbooks.
  • Recommended changes to drug and alcohol testing policies in the pre-employment process and during employment.
  • Update on new employment protections for off duty use.
  • How to recognize and train your managers on signs of cannabis impairment.
  • Tips to make expectations clear and avoid legal exposure.

This webinar is free but does require advance registration. To register for this important webinar visit, www.middlesexchamber.com.
