June - Weed in the Workplace
Oregon voters have “Just Said Yes” to personal pot use. Effective July 1st, Measure 91
allows people 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana in a public
place & up to 8 ounces in their homes.
Must employers now accommodate or tolerate marijuana usage
in the workplace? Kurt Barker will
explain how Measure 91 may affect your business practices and what a good drug-and-alcohol
policy should include. Will not having a
policy solve the problem? (Spoiler alert
– the answer is NO!).
Dr. Michael Price will give us an up-to-date report on the
effects of marijuana and how to recognize pot usage constituting reasonable
suspicion. We’ll also explore the latest
methods of drug screening, their reliability and cost effectiveness.

The HRACO Mentoring Program
Although human resource professionals have informally been mentors to others in the field for decades, formal SHRM mentoring programs across the country have had great success. We believe our members in Central Oregon can also benefit from such a program.
The Mentoring Program is still accepting applications for HR Professionals who would like to be mentored.
