Weed at Work:
Drug and Alcohol Use in the Workplace

HALF-DAY INTENSIVE WORKSHOP

The number of Canadians who will use cannabis for medical or recreational purposes is expected to grow significantly as a result of its recent decriminalization, creating new and challenging issues for employers. 

Together with a medical expert on substance use disorders and testing, and applying interactive learning and real life-scenarios, this half-day workshop examines employer obligations and best practices regarding the following key topics: 

1.      Impairment

  • The impact of cannabis on cognitive ability.
  • How to recognize signs of impairment.
  • Measuring impairment, including new developments in testing.

2.      Balancing Safety, Privacy and Human Rights

  • Employer rights and obligations.
  • The significance of medical vs. recreational use of cannabis.
  • Accommodating medical cannabis in the workplace.
  • When the duty to accommodate is engaged by a substance use disorder.

3.      Testing

  • Pre-employment; pre-access; random; post-incident; and return to work.
  • When testing is (and is not) permissible.

4.      Discipline and Policies

  • Holding employees accountable for drug and alcohol use and impairment in the workplace.
  • Practical tips for developing and implementing a drug and alcohol policy.
