With the expansion of the number of medical and recreational marijuana states, businesses are in need of basic employment law survival tools. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have already passed laws legalizing the use of medical marijuana, and other states are expected to come on board in 2015. Meanwhile, Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington state have passed laws legalizing the use of recreational marijuana. The protections vary from state to state.

  • In which states you can freely discipline an employee for testing positive for marijuana;
  • Reasonable accommodation requirements that might apply to medical marijuana users;
