A Littler webinar: medical marijuana and high heels in the Canadian workplace

Medical Marijuana and High Heels in the Canadian Workplace

The Canadian federal government has announced that recreational marijuana will be legalized nationwide by 2018. With the upcoming legalization, employers will need to navigate an ever-increasing complex web of obligations. This session will review the challenges employers may face as a result of legalization, employers’ obligations with respect to accommodating medical marijuana, and the extent to which employers may implement drug testing in order to ensure a healthy and safe workplace. This session will also briefly address the recently announced ban in British Columbia on requiring high heels in the workplace, possibly a sign of a new trend in workplace regulation.

Please note, content is geared toward Canadian law.
