Employers in Nevada are now banned from using marijuana tests when screening job applicants. This change comes as a result of a new law that was passed by the state legislature earlier this year.
This law is an important step forward in protecting the rights of workers in Nevada. It will ensure that people who use marijuana for medical purposes are not discriminated against when seeking employment. Additionally, it will help to reduce the number of people who are unnecessarily incarcerated for minor marijuana offenses.
The new law, which was passed by the state legislature in 2019, makes it illegal for employers to require job applicants to submit to drug tests for marijuana. The only exceptions are for positions that involve safety-sensitive tasks, such as operating a vehicle or machinery.
This is good news for job seekers in Nevada who use marijuana, as they will no longer have to worry about being discriminated against during the hiring process. This new law is a victory for workers' rights and civil liberties, and it is sure to have a positive impact on the state of Nevada.
The new law does, however, allow employers to test current employees for marijuana if they have a “good faith belief” that the employee is impaired while on the job. Employers are also allowed to test for marijuana if it is required by federal law. The change in the law is in line with the state’s recent legalization of recreational marijuana. In 2016, Nevada voters approved a ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana. The law went into effect on January 1, 2017. Since the law went into effect, employers have been grappling with how to deal with employees who use marijuana. Some employers have chosen to ban marijuana use entirely, while others have decided to allow employees to use marijuana off the clock. The new law is intended to give employers more clarity on how to deal with marijuana use by employees.
As marijuana becomes legal in more states, employers are wondering if they will still be able to drug test employees for marijuana. The answer is that it depends on the state.
Some states, like Colorado, have laws that protect employees from being drug tested for marijuana if they are not impaired at work. Other states, like Oklahoma, have laws that allow employers to drug test employees for marijuana.
