Up in Smoke: The New Era of Workplace Drug Management

Managing your employees’ use (and abuse) of drugs and alcohol is a complex issue. Employees already have easy access to medical marijuana, which can create a conflict between an employer’s obligation to ensure a safe workplace and the duty to accommodate. In these sessions, we will cover myths and facts about marijuana, an employer’s obligation to ensure its employees are unimpaired and fit for work, and what employers should be doing to prepare for the legalization of marijuana.

The Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of British Columbia and Yukon (CPHR) has pre-approved this webinar for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours.

In this 3-hour workshop, we will help you learn to navigate attendance-related issues, including policy drafting and implementation, accommodation of disability-related absences, and understanding when the employment relationship can be terminated as a result of poor attendance.
