On October 17, 2018 the recreational use of marijuana becomes legal in Canada. Employers will need to amend their workplace policies and practices related to the recreational use of drugs and alcohol to include the use of marijuana.

Employers should ensure that they have both an updated Drug and Alcohol Policy as well as a Fitness for Duty Policy that governs employee behaviour both in and out of the workplace during the workday. Employers also need to be careful to differentiate between the use of marijuana for recreational and medicinal purposes as an employee’s right to use medicinal marijuana is protected under both Human Rights legislation and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

Join us for an interactive seminar to discuss;

  • Changes to legislation
  • The impact on your workplace
  • Drug & Alcohol Policy
  • Fitness for Duty Policy
  • Off Duty Conduct Policy
  • What to do when an employee comes to work impaired
  • Accommodating medical marijuana users
  • Training and employee awareness
