HB 2541 the Anti-Prop 203 Bill Would Allow Employers to Discriminate Against Qualified Medical Pot Users
Phoenix New Times: “A state lawmaker wants to scratch out the anti-discrimination clause in Arizona’s medical marijuana law and give immunity to employers who fire qualified patients. The callous bill [HB 2541] by State Representative Kimberly Yee, R-Phoenix, also seeks to ban people from using medical weed “in a condominium or planned community common area that is open to use by the public.”
Here’s a portion of HB 2541:
“No cause of action is or may be established for any person against an employer who has established a policy and initiated a testing program in accordance with this article for any of the following:
ACTIONS BASED ON THE EMPLOYER’S GOOD FAITH BELIEF THAT AN EMPLOYEE USED OR POSSESSED ANY DRUG WHILE ON THE EMPLOYER’S PREMISES OR DURING THE HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT
ACTIONS BASED ON THE EMPLOYER’S GOOD FAITH BELIEF THAT AN EMPLOYEE HAD AN IMPAIRMENT WHILE WORKING WHILE ON THE EMPLOYER’S PREMISES OR DURING HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT”
