Mr. Siegel will provide a broad overview of the various medical marijuana use laws around the country. He will discuss the various protections that such medical marijuana use laws may provide to employees, and he will provide a roadmap on how to navigate through the difficult issues which arise with an employee using medical marijuana.

Mr. Siegel will discuss what an employer can and cannot do without running afoul of the Americans with Disability Act or state disability discrimination laws when it learns an employee is a registered medical marijuana user.

Lastly, he will spend some time discussing how some post-accident drug testing policies may be in violation of OSHA’s anti-retaliation rule, which went into effect last year.

Join us on Wednesday, December 6th at 1:00 p.m. and hear Phillip Siegel present on “High Times”, Navigating the Pitfalls of Marijuana Use Laws and Post-Accident Drug Testing.

The OSHA Recordkeeping Rule requires employers to electronically submit their OSHA injury and illness logs. The electronic recordkeeping rule requires employers to electronically submit their injury and illness logs—Forms 300A, 300, and/or 301—to OSHA depending on the size and industry of the employer.
Originally scheduled to become effective this summer, it has now been postponed until December 1, 2017. OSHA delayed this deadline, in part, to finalize its newly launched website, the Injury Tracking Application (“ITA”). This website allows employers to submit injury logs annually moving forward.
The ITA is a secure website which is currently accessible to employers. To submit their logs, covered employers first have to create an online account and a profile. Finally, employers will have three ways to submit their data:
• Manually entering data onto a web form.
• Uploading a CSV template containing your data.
• Transmitting electronically via API, if the employer uses an automated recordkeeping system.
Peter Shackford of Hettrick, Cyr and Associates will provided a refresher on the rule and even conduct a walk through on the new OSHA Reporting website where employers can submit their injury logs.
