What’s In the Nevada Marijuana Drug Employment Law?
JUNE 14, 2019
New legislation in Nevada makes it the first state to prohibit employers from disqualifying candidates because of a failed drug screen for marijuana. Governor Steve Sisolak signed the new law on June 5. Since the state passed its recreational marijuana use laws in 2016, the Governor felt the law was necessary to protect job seekers who use cannabis recreationally but may have been barred from employment because of their legal use of the substance.
