Medical Marijuana in the Workplace

New Jersey, like 28 other states in this country, allows individuals to use marijuana for medicinal purposes.  From time to time, employers in NJ may receive accommodation requests from employees with medical marijuana prescriptions.  Although medical marijuana is legal, employers in New Jersey are under no duty to accommodate such requests.  Additionally, even if an employer wanted to accommodate such a request, the employer would have to carefully consider the situation, including potential liability.   For more details on the rights of employers and what they need to consider under these circumstances, please contact GH&C’s Labor and Employment Department for assistance.
