Event description

Description

Employers are increasingly being faced with the delicate issue of medical marijuana in the workplace. To balance the competing interests of accommodation and workplace health and safety, employers need to understand their legal rights and obligations.

Jessica Thomson and Gab Joshee-Arnal will canvass the most recent judicial developments on medical marijuana and offer practical tips that will benefit employers in any industry.

Topics to be discussed include:

* Tips for drafting drug and alcohol policies responsive to authorized marijuana use

* “Safety sensitive” workplaces and how this impacts on policy

* Creating appropriate questionnaires for the employee’s physician

* The current state of marijuana testing—availability and reliability

* Addressing addiction

* What to do when an employee wants to use marijuana in the workplace
