Employers can’t inject themselves into personal medical decisions of the employee, said Dillon McGuire of Pashman Stein Walder Hayden in Hackensack, who argued on behalf of the ACLU-NJ. “The court’s decision in this case will have far broader implications for employees using medical marijuana throughout the state of New Jersey.
“A clear message must be sent to employers that, absent compelling circumstances, they cannot dictate their employees’ access to the medications that alleviate their pain. Every one of us has the constitutional and common law right to make our own medical decisions, and those decisions are ours and nobody else’s to make,” McGuire said.
