OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH + SAFETY

In addition to their already arduous obligations regarding workplace health and safety, employers must now add the new and unchartered hazards of cannabis in the workplace. Canada’s changing cannabis laws, along with existing legislation for medical use, make for a complicated legal landscape in the employment context.

We understand how the new federal and provincial laws may affect your business and are available to help you understand these legal changes. We also provide advice on developing practical policies and procedures to meet the demands of the changing cannabis laws.
