Enhance your understanding of the issues which Canadian workplaces will face beginning this summer in connection with the legalization of marijuana.

Part of the OsgoodePD O Cannabis! Webinar Series.

Before the year is out, Human Resources directors and managers will be grappling with the challenges which legalized marijuana will pose for both unionized and non-unionized environments.

Issues embracing a broad spectrum – including Occupational Health and Safety, workplace testing, human rights, privacy, accommodation and more – will need to be resolved in light of the relevant legislation and recent and emerging decisions.

Will you be ready?

OsgoodePD’s new 75-minute online seminar features expert commentary from Norm Keith (Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP) and Nancy Shapiro (Koskie Minsky LLP) – and an opportunity to have your most pressing questions addressed.

Issues covered include:

  • What’s known about the potential adverse effects of drugs on workers and workplaces
  • Occupational Health and Safety duties and regulatory restrictions
  • Enforcement of OHSA on workplace stakeholders after Metron Construction
  • Union role and responsibilities for worker fitness-for-duty
  • A + D policy and development: consensus or confrontation?
  • Deterrents and detection and the limits of testing: Irving Pulp and Paper
  • Human rights law and the duty to accommodate: Elk Valley Coal
  • Towards a safer workplace in a post-legalization Canada
