ABOUT THE SESSION - With the pending legalization of marijuana expected in July 2018, workplaces are taking steps to ensure that they are putting appropriate measures in place to ready themselves when legalization hits.  This day-long session will discuss the current state of the law and the proposed legal changes, and how the issue of legalization of recreational use will differ from medically prescribed use.  Time will be spent examining real life cases and how courts and tribunals have dealt with the issues such employee testing, employee searches, indicators of impairment, employee discipline and balancing safety issues with human rights.  This session will also provide practical tips on how employers can address the safety concerns legalization poses, including how to draft drug and alcohol policies that work.

SESSIONS OBJECTIVES - This session will provide attendees with an understanding of the law surrounding legal marijuana use (current and pending) and how legalization differs from medically prescribed use; to provide attendees with an understanding of the various safety issues imposed by those using and/or impaired by marijuana in the workplace; to provide attendees with an understanding of the other areas of workplace law that may intersect with safety issues arising out of marijuana use/impairment in the workplace; to equip attendees with the tools they need to understand and manage the safety risks posed by use/impairment by marijuana in the workplace in a legal way.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND - Business owners, managers, supervisors, safety and health managers and supervisors, human resources managers and supervisors.
