Corporate Conversations: The Blunt Facts: Are Federal Drug Laws Fit-For-Purpose in Modern America?

Overview

In episode 9 of Corporate Conversations, The Legal 500’s head of research for the GC Powerlist, Joe Boswell, speaks with Lisa Ann Cooney, General Counsel of Philadelphia-headquartered construction company Day & Zimmermann.

With a growing increase in state, but not federal, legislative support for the use of medical and recreational marijuana, more and more U.S. employers have questions on whether they need to relax their drug-testing policies. This is even more challenging for “U.S. government contractors”, who often have clauses in their contracts with the federal government that require drug-free workplaces or drug-free employees providing contracted services.

This discussion unpacks the hot-button issue and ask whether current requirements are fit-for-purpose in a changing United States.
