For many employers, the legalization of recreational cannabis, effective October 17, 2018, raises serious concerns about health, safety and productivity in the workplace. Join us for an interactive webinar as we take a closer look at the potential impact of cannabis legalization, as well as the rights and responsibilities of employers in the Bill C-45 era.

Topics will include:

  • Summary of Bill C-45 (The Cannabis Act) and regulatory framework
  • The dos and don’ts of employee drug testing
  • Accommodating recreational and medical cannabis use
