Nevada becomes first state to ban pre-employment marijuana tests
AB132 makes it unlawful for any Nevada employer to fail or refuse to hire someone if they test positive for marijuana.
“I didn’t want people to be discriminated against about the lawful use of marijuana,” Assemblywoman Dina Neal said. “That was my purpose.”
There are some exceptions.
The bill also allows employees who are required to submit a screening test within the first 30 days of being hired the chance to take a second test, at the expense of the employee.
The law goes into effect January 2020.
