Update: New York City’s Ban On Pre-Employment Marijuana Testing Will Take Effect on May 10, 2020

We previously blogged about the law passed by the New York City Council on April 9, 2019 that will prohibit employers from conducting pre-employment drug testing for marijuana. Because the law was not signed or vetoed by Mayor de Blasio within 30 days of passage, it became law on May 10, 2019. The law provides that it will take effect one year later. New York City employers therefore have until May 10, 2020 to get ready to comply with this law, which is the first of its kind in the United States. Click here to read our earlier blog discussing this law in more detail.
