Is Your Workplace Prepared for Legal Marijuana?                        

The federal government Task Force has reported with its recommendations for legalizing marijuana and the federal government has introduced draft legislation to legalize recreational marijuana effective July of 2018 – is your workplace ready? Are employees going to be entitled to use legal marijuana on the weekend and then work in a safety sensitive position Monday morning?  Is that safe?  This seminar will explore issues regarding health and safety, drug testing and policies you need to ensure a productive and safe workplace in advance of legalization.  It will also review the workplace experiences in the U.S. States which have recently legalized marijuana to learn from those jurisdictions.

Presentation is by Kevin Wilson, Q.C.
