What You Need to Know

The Cannabis Regulatory Commission is expected to release guidelines for employers on how they can ensure drug free workplaces and take action against employees suspected of being impaired by cannabis.

What will these guidelines allow and how will they work in the absence of Workplace Impairment Recognition Experts?

Join us as we hear from policymakers and experts in the field on what you need to know about workplace safety and how to maintain a safe workplace in the age of legalized, recreational cannabis.
