KZA Attorneys Discuss Problems Associated With Nevada's Law On Workplace Accommodations For Medical Marijuana Users

Volume 14, Issue 3
March 3, 2015

As an online exclusive of the February 2015 issue of the Nevada Lawyer, KZA attorneys Edwin Keller, Nicole Martin and Kaitlin Paxton discuss the haze surrounding the new employer obligation under NRS 453A.800 to make reasonable accommodations for the medical needs of an employee who engages in the medical use of marijuana. Their article, entitled Stoked About Marijuana Related Accommodations in the Workplace?, explores the hastily constructed language used by the 2013 Nevada Legislature to amend NRS 453A.800 that confounds employers and employees alike as to its full scope and application.
