Aaron Schlesinger, Partner in Peckar & Abramson’s New Jersey office, and Michael Schewe, Senior Counsel in Peckar & Abramson’s New Jersey office, will speak at the National Association of Surety Bond Producers’ upcoming Virtual Seminar. Their presentation is titled “Evolving Issues for Employers: Recent Developments in Cannabis Law and Form I-9 Immigration Compliance.” Aaron Schlesinger will discuss the constantly evolving employment law issues surrounding cannabis use for medical and recreational purposes. Mr. Schlesinger will outline the interplay between federal and state laws regarding marijuana, and explain how employers can both keep the workplace free of drug use and also avoid litigation over allegedly discriminatory behavior toward cannabis users. Michael Schewe will discuss the substantial uptick in worksite investigations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”), and the steps that employers can take to protect themselves from liability for Form I-9 processing and recordkeeping violations. Mr. Schewe will include an overview of the Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”) audit process, so employers can know what to expect when the government comes calling. Their presentation will take place on Tuesday, May 14 from 2 pm – 3 pm ET.
