Speaker Q&A

Question
What about employer liability when the employee performs in an altered state, even when taking the allowed dosage?
- AmyH
Answer
Most (if not all) state statutes that provide employee protections for lawful use of cannabis will not allow employees to use, possess, or be impaired (to any degree) during work time or on work premises. In other words, there should be no “allowed dosage” while employees are actually working, since cannabis can cause impairment. Employer policies should also expressly prohibit those actions. In that context, employer liability would be no different than concerns regarding employees who use other impairing substances, like alcohol.
