New York City Bars Pre-employment Marijuana Testing

May 20, 2019

The New York City Council recently passed a bill to prohibit pre-employment screening for marijuana. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio neither signed nor vetoed the bill within the city charter-mandated 30-day time period, so the bill became law on May 10, 2019. The law will take effect on May 10, 2020, one year from its passage.
