The pot thickens: Managing cannabis use and impairment in the workplace – Kelowna


Recreational cannabis is now legalized, leaving many organizations concerned about their workplace obligations, particularly where impairment is suspected. Join us for this workshop which focuses on providing managers, supervisors and HR professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to the use of cannabis by employees.

Harris associate Brad Cocke will discuss key issues during this interactive workshop, including:

  • Cannabis basics – from illicit drugs to legal medicine
  • How to react when you suspect an employee is impaired at work
  • How to conduct an effective investigation
  • Appropriate responses – whether to discipline or accommodate
  • How to draft and introduce effective policies
