Head to this beautiful venue and help your business with important law changes.Join 1Berkshire for this important workforce seminar. Numerous employment laws govern what employers can and cannot do relative to the use of drugs and alcohol in the workplace.

On November 8th, 2016 Massachusetts voters turned out to the polls, passing legislation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. While it is now legal to purchase cannabis from dispensaries and consume the drug in private, the law is still confusing – especially for employers. Drugs and alcohol are a tricky territory for businesses and organizations and questions about the topic from employees and employers are endless: Can I randomly drug test my employees?  Can I fire someone for using prescription medication?  Can I fire someone who appears under the influence at work?  These questions have been complicated further by the recent passage of legislation legalizing marijuana in Massachusetts.

Please join 1Berkshire along with attorneys Kevin Kinne and Ben Steffans of Cohen Kinne Valicenti & Cook for an interactive seminar on drugs and alcohol in the workplace to discuss best practices for handling these issues.

This seminar will take place at the Community Hall at Hancock Shaker Village. FREE for 1Berkshire Members. $10.00 for Non-Members. Register Now>>
