2018 Cannabis Briefing

The introduction of the Cannabis Act raises questions and challenges for Canadian employers when it comes to managing employees’ use (and abuse) of cannabis in the workplace. Join Drew Demerse and Ryan Copeland for an in-depth look at how legalization will impact the workplace. In this seminar, Drew and Ryan will discuss how legalization will impact disciplining employees who use cannabis, the use of recreational marijuana for medical purposes, and the duty to accommodate. They will also cover drug and alcohol testing in the workplace and what employers should be doing to prepare for the legalization of cannabis.
