As we’ve all heard by now, marihuana will soon be legal in Michigan for recreational use. But what does that mean for the workplace?

Well, according to Section 4.3 of the voter-initiated Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act, an employer may continue to enforce workplace drug policies and may also discipline, discharge, or refuse to hire an employee for marihuana use.

The moral of the story is “read up before you toke up!” Employers should review their workplace policies and procedures and consider revisions where appropriate.
