****** Medical Marijuana becomes Legal in Ohio on 9/6/2016 ******

But NOT in our workplace

Ohio has legalized the use of medical marijuana.  This becomes effective on September 6, 2016.  Medical marijuana will still remain an illegal substance in our workforce and anyone will be considered non-current if they test positive for use, regardless if a valid prescription is provided.  

This bill is very friendly to employers. The new law specifically allows for employers to maintain a drug-free workplace or zero-tolerance drug policy.  The bill also maintains an employer's right to terminate an employee who tests positive for marijuana.  Unemployment benefits are not required to be paid if a positive drug test is the reason for termination.

The union hall or your contractor will

with the MUST program, you can have
your profile updated in MOST.
