Legislation to legalize recreational marijuana was tabled in April 2017 with the implication that marijuana could be legal by summer 2018. What does this mean in the context of the workplace?
Many companies are in the process of reviewing their alcohol and drug policies and procedures, working on adjustments to accommodate the pending legislation. Once the new legislation and a company’s updated policy are in place, it will be critical to educate your workers on company expectations regarding marijuana use and any new or revised testing procedures.
