California is set to implement significant changes in employee protection regarding off-job cannabis use beginning January 1st, 2024. The newly enacted Assembly Bill (AB) 2188 amends the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), offering wider legal protection for workers and potential job candidates.

Key Provisions of the New Law:

  • Protection against discrimination based on off-job cannabis use: Employers can no longer fire, discipline, or refuse to hire individuals based solely on their cannabis use outside of work hours.
  • Prohibition on discrimination based on THC presence. . .
