New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill (S.854-A/A.1248-A) passed by the Senate and Assembly to legalize adult use of cannabis. The impacts of such will no doubt adversely impact construction industry employers, employees and project owners. How will such permissible use of cannabis by adults effect employers, construction job sites, safety, general liability insurance premiums, etc. and what legal ramifications are employers subject to under this legislation? Join construction contractors from across New York state for a free webinar on April 20, 2021 at 11 a.m. This free webinar will address the legal implications for contractors and employees alike, while also exploring the impact of legalized marijuana on the construction industry from a risk management perspective. Construction attorney Edward Sheats of Sheats & Bailey, PLLC will present information on the legal issues, while the risk management experts at OneGroup will tackle the general liability and risk management matters. The live webinar will allow for questions and answers at the end. Click here to register. This webinar is sponsored by the Building Industry Employers of New York State (BIE).
