What’s Going on With Cannabis in the Workplace? Very Little.
UPDATE: On February 17, 2023, the high court remanded the matter back to the special
master for reconsideration under a new legal standard.
Little assistance appears to be coming from the Legislature. There are no fewer than nine
bills pending that would allow certain classes of safety-sensitive employees to be prohibited from
off-duty cannabis use, or that would remove the WIRE requirement for assessing workplace
impairment. None of those bills has moved out of committee.
It is inevitable that cases of workplace impairment due to legal cannabis will arise. That
the state has not yet provided employers with the means for dealing with such workplace
impairment is troubling. For now, employers will be left to their own devices in this developing
area of law. Obtaining competent legal advice will be critical.
