Drugs and Alcohol in the Workplace – Employer Rights and Obligations (Half Day Session)

Independent Contractors and Businesses Association
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?
 
Topics covered:

•         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
