Marijuana & Workplace Safety – What’s an Employer to Do?

Event Summary

Marijuana accessibility is increasing. Social stigma is decreasing. Legalization for recreational use is a political promise with potential multi-billion dollar implications. As employers work to cope with this new reality, many questions come up. While implementation will lag behind legalization, it is important to start pro-actively addressing this issue now.

These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this session:

  • Medical Marijuana
    • What do you do if an employee comes to work with a prescription?
    • Do you have to accommodate all medical marijuana users?
    • Human Rights/Privacy vs Safety – which trumps?
  • Legalization of Recreational Marijuana in 2017
    • What are the implications for employers of recreational marijuana users:
      • at the workplace?
      • at work functions?
    • Is your workplace ready?
      • what role does your Drug & Alcohol Policy/Fitness for Duty Policy play?
      • how important is supervisor/manager training and employee awareness of expectations?
  • Case Study – workplace marijuana possession/use
    • Medical vs Recreational?
    • What are you obligated to do?
