Barclay Damon Live: The Cannabis Counselor, With Aleece Burgio—"MRTA and NYS Labor and Employment Law, Featuring Chris Harrigan"

This week, Aleece interviews Chris Harrigan, a member of Barclay Damon’s Labor & Employment Practice Area and Cannabis Team, about how the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) pertains to labor and employment law. Chris explains that changes to the New York Labor Law, specifically § 201-d, make using legal marijuana comparable to drinking alcohol in the eyes of the law. Chris and Aleece touch on preemployment drug testing, drug testing and discipline for established employees, exceptions to the general rule for disciplining and terminating employees for marijuana use, and key takeaways for employers. Tune in to hear Chris’s perspective on how the MRTA’s labor and employment provisions have impacted employers and employees in New York State.
