Cannabis Regulation and the Workplace, featuring Michael Litchfield, BA’00, LLB’04

The legalization of cannabis in Canada in 2018 brought with it uncertainty for management and human resources professionals across the country. While many of the fears expressed in the build up to legalization have not materialized, those responsible for the development of safe and productive workplaces in Canada are still left with many unanswered questions. The recent legalization of edibles and consumables, which can be consumed in more discreet ways, has only increased the desire for guidance in this important area.

In this webinar, Michael Litchfield, BA’00, LLB’04, will provide an introduction to the regulation of cannabis in Canada and its impact on the workplace. A variety of topical issues will be canvased including the rights of employers to regulate cannabis use in the workplace, the duty to accommodate users of medical cannabis in the workplace and the place of cannabis in work related social events.
