Medicinal cannabis is legal in Canada and as of October 17, 2018 recreational cannabis is also legal. 

What does this mean for your workplace?

Jane M. Gooding, a partner in the Hamilton office of Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP will provide an overview of the new laws that have legalized cannabis use in Canada and Ontario, including the employer’s duty to provide a safe and hazard-free work environment for employees, when drug testing is and is not permitted and the employer’s duty to accommodate cannabis use.

Heidi McGuire and Madi McNitt, City of Hamilton, Public Health Services will explain the  Smoke-Free Ontario Act, including where the public can and cannot smoke or vape cannabis. They will talk about the health implications of second hand smoke and other issues.

The event takes place on Thursday, January 24/19.
