I need to know the law on using prescribed narcotics at the workplace in Michigan.



I as well as most attorneys that post responses here are all admitted to practice law only in California. However, some others may have knowledge of Michigan law. I would say that the general answer is that as long as the prescribed drugs do not pose a safety danger to the employee or others, then the employer has to allow the employee to take those drugs as prescribed.

With absolutely no disrespect intended, I worked in a school district which explicitly forbade any use of narcotics or controlled substances in or on any property owned by that district.

No disclaimer was made for prescription narcotics or controlled substances in the district "rules."
