WEBINAR: Drugs and Alcohol in the Workplace – Employer Rights and Obligations
December 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Drug and alcohol use has become an increasing issue in the workplace, especially given the prevalence of prescribed marijuana for medicinal reasons. How do you deal with an employee in a safety-sensitive role who has a medical marijuana licence? Are they still allowed to perform their safety sensitive job? If an employee with a licence says they need to use their marijuana at the workplace, how is this addressed? Are employees with medical marijuana licences exempt from drug testing?
In this 1.5-hour interactive session we will discuss:
• Drug and Alcohol Policies
• Testing for Drug and Alcohol Use
• Consequences for Testing Positive
• Pre-employment Situations
• Impaired at Work Situations
• Accommodation requirements for workers with drug and or alcohol addiction
• Suggested wording on Medical Marijuana to update company policies
While this session is part of a series, participants are not required to attend all sessions in the series or attend in any sequence. Each session can be attended independently.
