2024 California law to protect most workers using cannabis on own time

Starting Jan. 1, it will be illegal for employers to discriminate against hiring, firing or punishing someone based on their use of cannabis when not working and away from the worksite. Moving forward, employers can still test employees and potential employees for THC, the major psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that can indicate impairment. However, the law stops employers from discriminating against them if they test positive for non-psychoactive cannabis metabolites, or metabolized THC, found in hair, blood, urine and other bodily fluids.
