Description

Recreational cannabis is now legalized, leaving many organizations concerned about their workplace obligations, particularly where impairment is suspected. go2HR is pleased to offer this webinar, which will provide business owners, managers, supervisors and HR professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to the use of recreational cannabis by employees. This webinar features Harris & Co. LLP lawyer Brad Cocke as our speaker.

During the session, Brad will discuss:

  • Cannabis basics - from recreational drug to prescription medicine
  • How to react when you suspect an employee is impaired at work
  • How to conduct an effective investigation
  • Appropriate responses – whether to discipline or accommodate
  • How to draft and introduce effective policies

Brad assists public and private sector employers with labour, employment, human rights, and workers’ compensation matters. In particular, he advises employers with respect to grievances, picketing activity, and collective agreement interpretations as they relate to day-to-day operations.
