Moye White LLP Attorney featured on KMGH 7News

Employment attorney Liza Getches, partner at Moye White LLP, was featured in a story on marijuana in the workplace on KMGH 7News.

Russell Haythorn writes – “While marijuana may be legally purchased, legally possessed and legally smoked as of January 1, under Colorado law, it can also get you legally fired.

In 2010 a Colorado man was fired by his employer, Dish Network, for using medical marijuana off-duty. The Colorado Court of Appeals upheld the firing which is now being heard by the Colorado Supreme Court.

Amendment 64 gives employers the same discretion, allowing them to prohibit marijuana use both on and off the job.

Marijuana proponents believe it’s a double-standard.”
