2016 TCA Convention

Keynote Address - Legalized Marijuana: Pot in My Workplace?

Presenter: David C. Whitlock - Whitlock Law LLC
Date and time: Tuesday, October 11 - 12:00p to 1:30p

As more and more states legalize pot – both for recreational and medical use – employers are struggling to cope with how this may affect the workplace and fellow workers.

It is important to note the conflict between state and federal enforcement, as well as the contrasting viewpoints of legislatures and courts. Concrete contractors need to understand the importance of impairment and that they have the right to prohibit it – regardless of its cause.

Bottom line: just because it is becoming more “legal” to smoke pot, doesn’t mean that you have to tolerate it at work.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
