D.C. Prohibits Pre-Employment Drug Testing for Marijuana

By former Associate Jack Blum

Employer Summary: Under a new law, employers hiring in D.C. may not test applicants for marijuana usage until after the applicant receives a conditional offer of employment for the position.  Along with D.C.’s recent “ban the box” law on criminal background checks, this new enactment may require employers to adjust their application and hiring processes.
