Medical marijuana is a rapidly changing topic and has great implications for workplaces.
Managing medical marijuana in the workplace is complex and requires specialized knowledge of medical
cannabis, workplace policy and case law. Approaching recreational legalization adds another layer of challenges.
The information you hear will ensure you have the tools to mitigate risk in your organization.
The Master Class is a small group, facilitated “working” class. In this
workshop we will do a deep dive on your Drug and Alcohol Policy to ensure it is cannabis compliant. Participants will leave with a new draft of their policy. Participants will also leave with business processes for managing medical and recreational cannabis disclosures.
