Marijuana Legalization: Is Your Workplace Ready?

Date: Tuesday, October 24, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. ET

With the medicinal cannabis industry flourishing, the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada is now looming. However, despite the federal government’s recent announcement detailing its planned legislation, there remains a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the evolution of marijuana regulation. At this time, it is important that all employers consider the impacts of legalization on their business.

Join us to gain insight on the rights and responsibilities of employers in managing both medicinal and recreational marijuana use on the job.

Our experts will discuss:

  • The importance of adapting drug and alcohol-related policies
  • Why is it vital to communicate these changes organization wide.
  • What must an employer consider before terminating an employee for a breach of policy?
  • How can employees monitor/verify impairment? Are drug tests reasonable?
  • What are the human rights and employee privacy implications associated with drug testing?
  • Could a marijuana addiction constitute a disability and lead to accommodation? Best practices for handling workplace accommodation.
