With recreational marijuana use scheduled to be legalized in July 2018, many employers and employees are feeling a little dazed and confused about what the new place of cannabis, and changing employee expectations, will mean for the workplace. Can employers continue to expect that employees will show up sober and ready to work? Will employees be allowed to smoke, vape or consume edibles at work? What about in the parking lot, or during breaks? What if the employee is a truck driver, or a teacher? Under what situations can employees be terminated? When, where, why, how and what can employers test for? What impact will legalization have on employers’ existing duties to accommodate medical marijuana users, and also provide a safe workplace? Which company policies should be updated and how? Clear the smoke! Attend this program and hear from experienced employment lawyer Shelley Brown what he is advising clients, and why. You’ll learn about the US experience, relevant Canadian cases, and more!
