Our friends at Littler Mendelson P.C. recently posted this article:
The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (“the Commission”) on September 9, 2022 issued long-awaited guidance for employers on how to respond when employees are suspected of marijuana impairment. This is the Commission’s first workplace guidance since the adoption of the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization Act (“the Act”), which Governor Murphy signed on February 22, 2021. The Act legalized the use of recreational marijuana for adults over the age of 21 as a matter of state law, but created many obstacles and uncertainties for employers seeking to maintain a drug-free workplace.
