Legalized medical marijuana will create new challenges for Illinois businesses
Tue, 11 Jun 2013 01:00:00 GMT —
Can you hire and fire employees that test positive for marijuana use?
What options do employers have if an employee shows up impaired because of marijuana use?
The bill to make that happen is now sitting on
Governor Pat Quinn's
desk waiting for his signature.
The sponsor of the measure says that if the medical marijuana is legalized there would be a minimal impact on employers or businesses that already have a zero-tolerance drug policy.
The bill passed by the Illinois legislature is said to be the strictest measure of its kind in the nation.
