My employee has a prescription for marijuana, can I fire the employee for a positive drug test for marijuana?
There’s no such thing as a prescription for marijuana because it’s not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Individuals with one of the qualifying medical conditions under a States’ marijuana laws are given a recommendation for medical use by a certified physician. Before firing anyone, employers should take a look at their drug free workplace policy. Medical marijuana should be addressed in every employer drug testing policy.
