As an employer, do you know the appropriate course of action to take when an employee has disclosed their authorization to use medicinal cannabis? This is a complex topic that involves a variety of considerations.

In this free webinar, you will learn from an Employment Labour Lawyer, an Addiction Medicine Specialist, and Occupational Physician, as they explore a recent Labour Board Arbitrator's ruling that an employer had a responsibility to try and accommodate an aircraft maintenance engineer, even though the air ambulance service provider had a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to cannabis.

The goal of this educational session is to provide you with knowledge and guidance on the considerations that should be taken as an employer when employees disclose medicinal cannabis use.

Discussion points will include:

• What should an employer consider when building an Alcohol and Drug policy?
• What does “zero tolerance” mean, and when is it appropriate?
• What does “Duty to Accommodate” mean?
• What should an employer do once an employee has disclosed their authorization to use medicinal cannabis?
• How long is someone impaired by cannabis?
• Learn the differences between CBD and THC
• Is cannabis a suitable treatment for anxiety?
