Dude, Where’s my Job? Employee Protection for Off-Site Marijuana Use Under Florida Law

In Florida, can an employer fire (or refuse to hire) an employee whom tests positive for THC when such employee has a legal marijuana card issued by the state of Florida and was not under the influence at the workplace? The issue generally arises under two circumstances: (1) a prospective employee is required to take a drug test as a condition of employment; or (2) a current employee is required to take a drug test after a workplace accident for worker’s compensation purposes. In my article published here by Cannabis News Florida I provide a solution for how a Florida court should resolve this issue in favor of the employee.
