Medical Marijuana Update

Medical marijuana is now legal in Ohio. The BWC has released the attached fact sheet for guidance on how it may impact your business. Employers should consider implementing a Drug Free Work Place(“DFWP”) policy or updating their current policies to reflect this change and to ensure that their business and workers are protected.  Pickrel, Schaeffer and Ebeling assists employers with developing DFWP policies and defending against Workers’ Compensation claims involving drug and alcohol testing issues.
