New Year, New Laws Seminar - San Francisco

California employers will soon need to adjust to a new reality as a number of new workplace restrictions have been passed by the state legislature and just signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown.

In light of the ever-evolving legal landscape, employers need to stay up-to-date on current legislation or face potential litigation.

What’s the Buzz About: Legalized Marijuana and the Hospitality Industry

This webinar, presented by Diyari Vázquez, a premier hospitality and employment lawyer from Michelman & Robinson, LLP, addresses the impact of legalized marijuana on the hotel and resort business and workplace. Ms. Vazquez will discuss the rising tide of states that permit the use of recreational and/or medical cannabis; the federal law that outlaws pot  and treats the drug no different than cocaine, heroin or LSD; the growing popularity of marijuana tourism – a boon to the hoteliers to be sure; and the potential issues that arise between employers and employees that smoke, vape or otherwise consume the substance.
