Berkeley Expert Weighs in on Employment Drug Testing
While legal adult recreational use of cannabis in California has blurred the issue of employment drug testing, Berkeley-based employment attorney Paul Glusman confirms that California employers can still legally require employee drug tests. The supreme court ruled that drug testing does not violate an employee’s privacy.
Until recently, the state of California did not provide any employee protection for the off-duty use of marijuana. However, on August 13, 2022, the California legislature passed Assembly Bill (AB) 2188. This prohibits employers from discriminating against an employee or job candidate based on their off-duty medical or recreational marijuana use, except for pre-employment drug testing.
It’s important to note that the bill still allows employers to continue enforcing drug-free workplace policies and testing for marijuana impairment, as long as the tests are not focused on “non-psychoactive” chemicals in the body. In addition, employers can restrict employees from using, being impaired by, or possessing cannabis in the workplace.
