Last Thursday, the Senate approved an amended version of the federal government’s bill on the legalization of recreational marijuana. While the bill has been sent back to the House of Commons for further debates, employers should be prepared to address the impending changes that legalization will bring to the workplace.

 

If you haven’t reviewed your current drug and alcohol policy or don’t know where to start to address the upcoming changes, contact your provincial association to access the employer toolkit on recreational marijuana and its impact on the workplace.

In Ontario your local Chapter of Infrastructure Health and Safety Association may provide assistance in compliance.
