Douglas maintains there are three camps in the NorthBay: “No testing, testing but not for cannabis, or testing for everything. Company culture and the tight labor market are the driving forces behind which camp an employer chooses.” The lack of a meaningful test to determine if someone is impaired at work has made testing of limited value. Employers’ main priority is providing a safe place to work and this is best measured by observing someone’s actions and performance.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Tennessee Wine & Spirits Retailers Association v. Thomas is being hailed as a landmark case in alcohol beverage law. In reaching their decision, the seven justices that signed on to the majority decision cited DP&F’s Richard Mendelson’s book on the history of wine law in the U.S. in reaching their conclusion. Mendelson’s research, writing, and scholarly work continue to influence the laws and regulations governing the production, distribution, and sale of alcoholic beverages.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jaymie Kilgore. As an administrative assistant with DP&F for over 20 years, Jaymie was a friend, colleague and valued member of the DP&F team. We will miss her terribly. Information concerning her celebration of life may be found HERE
In a recent blog post, DPF Partners Bahaneh Hobel and John Trinidad discuss the DTC shipping implications of the Supreme Court decision in Tennessee Wine & Spirits Retailers Association v. Thomas, issued on June 26, 2019. “States that allow in-state retailers to ship to consumers but prohibit out-of-state retailers from doing so will find such laws difficult to defend in the face of today’s decision. To avoid legal challenges, states may choose to adopt statutes that allow all retailers, regardless of where they are located, the right to ship directly to consumers, or prohibit retailers from doing so altogether.” More: https://www.dpf-law.com/blogs/lex-vini/supreme-court-wine-retailers/
