Situation Report | May 10, 2021
New York State recently passed legislation that legalizes the recreational use and possession of up to 3 ounces of marijuana by adults over age 21. It allows for recreational use prior to the beginning of and after the conclusion of the employee’s work hours.
In this May 18 webinar (from 2 to 3 p.m.), Frank Kerbein, Director for the Center for Human Resources at The Business Council of New York State, will review the provisions of the new law, how they may affect employers in general and home care providers specifically.
