Can we terminate for the use of medical marijuana?

05/09/2017

Q: “A newly hired employee provided us with a doctor’s note stating that he is approved for the use of medical marijuana. During his pre-employment, he tested negative for use of illegal drugs. What are our rights as an employer? Are we required to accommodate the use of marijuana on or off duty? Can we terminate the employee for the use of medical marijuana?” – Cecilia, California
