Event Details


While the Canadian government has expressed its intention to legalize recreational cannabis by July 2018, employers are raising important questions about the impact this will have on the workplace. This information session will shed light on recent cases and unravel employer concerns such as: 

  • What do employers need to know about the duty to accommodate under Human Rights legislation? Does this apply to all types of cannabis users?
  • What are some key considerations for Workplace Drug and Alcohol policies?
  • Is an employer entitled to ask for evidence if an employee says they have been prescribed medical cannabis?
  • What should employers know about maintaining a safe and productive work environment?

Whether you call it weed, cannabis, marijuana, grass, doobie (or any other name), this session’s primary focus is to inform employers on the most important things they should know so they can proactively prepare their workplace for the pending legalization of recreational cannabis.

Registration:  8:00-8:30

Session:         8:30-10:00

Light continental breakfast provided.
