2022 First Friday Breakfast Series: June 3rd
Join us to hear from our Guest Speaker, Stuart Jackson, Attorney & Partner with Wright, Lindsey & Jennings in Little Rock.
Stuart is one of the most highly regarded employment attorneys in Arkansas, whose focus as of late has been on pandemic-related employment issues (including the paid leave provisions of the FFCRA), medical marijuana in the Arkansas workplace and defending collective and class actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Arkansas Minimum Wage Act.
Mr. Jackson will be joining us on Friday, June 3rd to speak with our Chamber Members regarding "Recreational & Medical Marijuana: What Employers Need to Know” . In November, Arkansas voters may have the opportunity to cast ballots on two recreational proposals. The big employment question – how will any recreational marijuana/cannabis law that passes interact with the various medical marijuana rules that apply to Arkansas businesses? There is a significant chance that one of these amendments will pass, if one or both make it on the ballot. Because of this, employers should have recreational marijuana on their radars and should understand how the legal distinctions between recreational and certified medical use play out in the workforce.
