Over the course of the past 15 or 16 months, COVID has rightly been in the forefront. Despite the importance of defeating that pandemic however, it is imperative that we continue to keep an eye on non-COVID related issues. In that vein, the city of Philadelphia recently passed an ordinance that prohibits employers from testing for marijuana use as a pre-condition of employment. Although there are a few exceptions (police, commercial driving, etc.) to the ordinance, which is slated to become effective on January 1, 2022, most private employers should plan to eliminate marijuana testing completely. It is also timely to note that the Philadelphia plastic bag ban will become effective on July 1, 2021. The ban was originally passed in December, 2019 but was subsequently delayed due to COVID and is now subject to a revised implementation schedule. Under the ordinance, businesses must hang signage to inform customers of the ban by the end of July with warnings being issued beginning in October and full implementation becoming effective on April 1, 2022 with full enforcement at that time.
