Are you losing sleep or worried about what the medical marijuana legalization in your State means to you and your business?

I remember the first time I heard that it was going to be legal in Ohio.

That night I tossed and turned worrying about my business, trying to figure out if my liability would increase? I already have some workforce development needs!

Would I have employees walking around high all the time?

If someone is high at work or under the influence would I be able to terminate or discipline them?

When everything first came out there were many times that I just wanted to ignore the whole thing, but I said to myself…

Wait it out Cheryl… let's see what we really need to do in order to continue business as usual.

Over the past few months, we've been working diligently to understand the rules and figure out the best way communicate to our managers and our employees what the expectations will be once everyone can potentially get a prescription.

The truth is creating the right policies and procedures will keep my business running and functioning well with employees who are capable and safe.

Because of our trial and error, we now have the perfect toolkit formula that can be implemented by small businesses in 6 simple steps.

Without an HR person or team…

These steps can be implemented very easily by whoever oversees the HR in your organization…even if it’s YOU with your busy schedule.
