Cannabis in the Workplace – Webinar

Published On: June 12th, 2018Categories: Commercial Insurance, Webinar

Legalization of Cannabis in Canada is quickly approaching. Is your business prepared?

The top five concerns workplace leaders are noting for the legalization of cannabis are:

  1. Employees operating motor vehicles
  2. Disciplinary procedures
  3. Decreased work performance
  4. Employees using heavy machinery
  5. Attendance issues

A recent study by Deloitte shows that approximate 1 in every 5 Canadians consume marijuana for recreational purposes. Once cannabis is legalized the study shows another 17% of Canadians say they will consider starting to consume. That means that legalization increased recreational use of cannabis to approximately 4 in 10 Canadians. This of course includes many employees and drivers.

Carole McAfee Wallace, a lawyer with Fernandes Hearn LLP, joins us to discuss this very question. From individual performance to workplace safety to employer rights Carole provides a wide-ranging overview of the upcoming potential impacts. Carole also reviews what we know already today as the use of medical cannabis has been legal for awhile now.
