Alcohol and Drugs in the Workplace

- 01:30 PM

Drugs and alcohol pose unique problems for employers, both in safety-sensitive and other working environments. Difficulties in testing are compounded by a complex legal environment in which human rights, privacy rights, union obligations, and general employment obligations frequently overlap. With both legal and attitude shifts towards the use of certain drugs and the medicalization of dependencies, employers face additional challenges in ensuring they meet statutory, moral, and practical obligations to maintain a safe and productive workplace.

Join James Lingwood and Dave Foster as they discuss drug and alcohol issues and provide information to assist employers in understanding their roles and options in tackling these evolving concerns.

Topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Drug and alcohol policy development
  • Collection of medical information
  • Pre-employment, reasonable cause, post-incident, site-owner, and random testing
  • Accommodation and discipline of substance-dependent employees

Who Should Attend: This webinar is designed for in-house counsel and labour relations, human resources, and operations professionals.
