Resource Update: Recreational Marijuana in the New Jersey Workplace

Date   Jan 23, 2018

One of Governor Phil Murphy’s top priorities in his new administration is the decriminalization of marijuana in New Jersey. The proposed bill most likely to become law this year comes as employers are just getting comfortable with a workforce eligible for medical marijuana use. Though similar to current medical marijuana policy, the new proposed law legalizing recreational marijuana use will affect hiring, discipline, and firing decisions in novel and important ways, as discussed in the white paper, Recreational Marijuana in the New Jersey Workplace - At a Glance.  For information on how to request a copy of the white paper, please visit the In-Depth Analysis page of FordHarrison's Knowledge Center.
