Covid-19 and Marijuana: Still at the Top of Employers’ List of Concerns

May 3, 2021

It’s a question that is still in the back of every employers’ mind: “Am I following the latest guidance on workforce exposure to COVID?” Now there’s an additional question for business owners in New York State: “What will the impact of the new marijuana law be on employers?”

It’s been more than a year since the initial Coronavirus shut-down and the rules and regulations are still in flux.  Now, there are also implications to consider with the legalization of marijuana in New York State. It is critical for business owners to stay updated.

On April 28, 2021, partner Stacey Trien offered employers a webinar called Employment Law Developments, Post Covid.  Most of the participants were members of CONEX which is the Construction Exchange of Buffalo and Western New York.

The primary topics discussed included vaccinations, the current guidance on workforce exposure to COVID, sick leave, and Paid Time Off. Several participants were also interested in hearing an interpretation of the new marijuana law in relation to employers.

The attorneys of Adams Leclair LLP provide advice to employers regarding COVID-19 and marijuana legislation and its impact upon the workplace. Here is the latest information on guidance from New York State as of April 1, 2021.  Stacey Trien, Esq. can be contacted at or 585-327-4110.
