Description

Employee protections; medicinal use of cannabis oil.

The bill provides that such prohibition does not (i) restrict an employer's ability to take any adverse employment action for any work impairment or to prohibit possession during work hours or (ii) require an employer to commit any act that would cause the employer to be in violation of federal law or that would result in the loss of a federal contract or federal funding.
