With yesterday’s vote legalizing recreational marijuana in Nevada, some employers might be concerned about the impact that this new law will have on workplaces across the state. However, Nevada employers can rest comfortably: the new law will not prevent you from maintaining and applying zero-tolerance or similar drug policies in your places of employment. Even with the passage of Question 2 (garnering some 54% of the popular vote), you will be free to screen applicants, administer drug tests, and discipline employees who test positive for marijuana.
