Current Employment Opportunities
As more and more U.S. states lighten laws on marijuana use, it has left many HR professionals with a problem and a question they have never been faced with before: What, if anything, should they do with their existing drug use policies? In this blog, read about what you may want to consider should the question be raised in your company, according to HR professionals from Colorado and Washington who weighed in on an article published in HR Magazine’s June 2014 issue.
In most U.S. states, recreational and medical use of marijuana is still illegal. Where it is only legal for medical purposes, the laws are strict as to how the drug is ingested, making it only legal in oil, pill, or vapor form. However, as more and more states consider jumping on board with Colorado and Washington in legalizing cannabis for medical and recreational use, it may only be a matter of time before you have to discern how it will affect your company and workforce. Here are some suggestions on what to think about when you’re faced with the question of changing your drug use policy:
Medical use – If any amount of THC in the system makes a worker unsafe in your company’s working environment, for instance operating machinery or heavy equipment, it may be appropriate to suggest a leave until medical use of marijuana is no longer necessary. Or, you may choose to work with the employee to find a different treatment option. However, you’ll have to keep in mind the rules that go along with all types of medical leave.
Recreational use – Since testing for THC in the body may provide a positive result at least 30 days after use, you could be setting yourself up for a lawsuit if you punish employees for doing something completely legal on their personal time. For now, marijuana use is federally illegal, so companies are sticking to their existing drug policies and staying consistent across the board. Whether your policy changes or not, be sure to offer clear communication as to how this affects employees.
As you can see, more lenient laws and attitudes on marijuana use are raising questions. How you adjust depends on your company’s needs for performance and workforce. If you have questions about how best to address this issue in your company, it may be helpful to ask someone with an unbiased option, since this could be a gray area.

Are you an HR professional determined to make 2014 your best year in your career? If you’re like most HR professionals, you’re not likely to see much of an increase in pay, according to an article in the December issue of HR Magazine written by Joseph Coombs. However, there are some HR professionals positioning themselves for big financial growth. In this blog, read about how to be one of those select few who realize large financial gain in 2014.
Many HR professionals feel as though their salary growth is stuck, especially since they’ve seen little increase in recent years. On the other hand, HR professionals with staffing responsibilities say that it has become increasingly difficult to find candidates who possess the qualifications they are looking for. If you’re one of the many people in the HR profession, you have two opportunities in 2014 to grow your career and have it pay off financially:
Get into staffing. Because of the scarcity of talent out there, companies are starting to beef up their recruitment game. Whether you work for a third party company or within a company’s own staffing division, employers are realizing they need to pay well to have their staffing departments recruit top talent.
Get certified. Because of the lack of qualified candidates, you have an opportunity to become one of those qualified candidates. By determining what you like to do most in your job today and getting certified and a more in-depth education on those skills, you can position yourself as an expert in that field. Not only will you get to do the part of your job you like most every day, you’ll get paid much more as a specialist.
