What Employers Should Know: Prop 1 Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

Posted: Friday, November 16, 2018

MMRMA has received many inquiries from members regarding the November 6, 2018 election and the passage of Proposal 1 legalizing recreational marijuana.  Most of these inquiries relate to information on the rights of employers.  Michigan's election results were officially certified on Monday, November 26, and recreational marijuana will become legal on December 6, 2018.

The new law does not change the fact that employers are entitled to prohibit marijuana use in the workplace.  Employers may wish to review their work rules and policies, particularly those regarding workplace safety, and update if needed.  Make sure employees are aware of your employment policies and work rules. 

Additionally, employers are not required to accommodate an employee’s marijuana use and may prohibit employees from coming to work under the influence of marijuana. Employers may refuse to hire an applicant and may discipline and/or discharge employees who violate an employer’s policy of zero tolerance for drug use in the workplace. 

Marijuana remains illegal under federal law.  As such, employees who possess Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDL) are required to comply with federal Department of Transportation (DOT) rules governing same.

This notice is intended solely to provide basic information. MMRMA recommends that you consult with legal counsel to address any legal needs that may be particular to your entity.
