I work for a company in California that is owned by the federal government. The company made it clear when CA passed its Cannabis laws/regulations last year that they will continue to test and that they follow federal law so therefore employees can be disciplined including possibly being fired if we test positive for Marijuana.
I have been working from home (telecommuting) these past few months due to the pandemic and local shelter in place orders. I have anxiety and arthritis and have been wanting to try different marijuana products to help with this.
Is it possible for an an employer in California to order their telecommuting employees to do a drug test? Is it likely? Are there any known cases anyone knows about? I want to do it but want to know how to weigh the risk.
