#CleanUpTheMess: The Implications of Marijuana Legalization and Opioid Use to the Workplace and the Workers' Compensation System

#CleanUpTheMess: The Implications of Marijuana Legalization and Opioid Use to the Workplace and the Workers' Compensation System

Feb 22, 2018

Mark Pew will provide an informative and interesting discussion on the Implications of Marijuana Legalization and Opioid Use to the Workplace and the Workers' Compensation System. Forty-one states have some form of legalized medical cannabis. Reimbursement of marijuana by the workers’ compensation system has occurred in at least seven states, whether by court mandate or voluntarily. New Mexico even has it on its fee schedule. While marijuana is not as benign as advocates say, the argument that it is less dangerous than opioids – a treatment often enabled by workers’ compensation– has caused many around the country to reconsider their opinion. If workers’ compensation payers are not dealing with cannabis claims yet, they likely will be soon. This presentation will help explain the situation and implications.

Mar 13, 2018

By 2025 Millennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce. Employers are faced with the shift from a “boomer” work culture to one based upon the different expectations, work styles and needs of Millennial workers. Millennials are also impacting related employment claims including the substance, frequency, resolution (including amount of settlement) of cases and ultimately how they are tried. This program will discuss the distinct Millennial characteristics that are changing the workplace, and identify how those distinctions are revealing themselves in claims handling and employment litigation.
