Cannabis Use Employment Discrimination Laws Enacted

Employment Lawyer

On September 22, 2022, Governor Newsome signed multiple new laws that are related to the use of cannabis, including protection from discrimination in the workplace that an experienced employment lawyer Beverly Hills, CA offers can explain to you in detail. According to the new law, an employer can not discriminate against an employee for their use of cannabis while off-duty. The law is set to go into effect January 1, 2024. Employers may need to review their drug use and drug testing policies in order to be in compliance with the new law by the time it goes into effect. The law will likely make it easier for people to use cannabis on their own time and not be in fear of losing their job for the activities they do in their off-duty time. The details of this law are still being considered and changes followed closely by employment lawyers who will represent employees who are discriminated against for this newly protected area.
