About this upcoming session

Drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace can put the safety of your staff at risk. Besides affecting performance, it can lead to employee conduct issues, unauthorized absences, and increased risk of accidents and injuries.

A strong workplace drug and alcohol policy can help reduce such risks and provide a safe and hazard-free work environment for your employees.

Managing drug and alcohol in the workplace is also tricky. Substance abuse dependence is considered to be a disability under Canadian law. In such cases, employers have a duty to inquire and accommodate employees with substance abuse dependence to the point of undue hardship.

Join our experts, Olivia Cicchini and Michelle Ann Zoleta, for our upcoming webinar and learn about employer rights and duties when it comes to substance abuse management in the workplace.

At the webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • What to include in your drug and alcohol policy

  • BC’s recriminalization of hard drugs in public spaces

  • Ontario’s naloxone kit requirements

  • Your duty to accommodate workers with substance dependence

  • What constitutes undue hardship
