Upcoming Events - Webinar


With cannabis legalization expected in the fall of 2018, employers must get ready for the impacts on the workplace. Businesses’ preparation includes understanding the drug and its implications for the workplace, learning the signs of substance use within the workplace, the science of impairment testing, and updating policies and procedures to deal with the new reality.

The upcoming webinar will be led by Osler’s Employment & Labour and Pensions & Benefits teams, and a featured guest expert on workplace cannabis testing and assessments.

Join us as our speakers help employers prepare through a discussion about cannabis legalization in Canada, including:

  • The medical effects of cannabis, how to identify signs of intoxication within the workplace, and how the effects of cannabis compare to alcohol-based impairment

  • Setting the standard of permissibility within the workplace by establishing a distinction between medical and recreational cannabis, and enforcing effective workplace policies

  • Workplace testing

  • The scope of medical cannabis benefits plan coverage

Guest Speaker

Dr. Melissa Snider-Adler, Chief Medical Review Officer, Addiction Medicine Physician at DriverCheck Inc.
