Our group can provide guidance on the legal repercussions of legalized cannabis on an organization’s human resource management. In most cases, employees on total temporary disability leave will be the ones consuming marijuana. Some of them, however, particularly those returning to work on a progressive basis, may continue to consume the substance, perhaps even during working hours. Moreover, recreational cannabis will also definitely have an effect on human resources management. In light of this momentous pending legislative change, the Langlois’ lawyers Labour Law team has spared no time in readying itself so that it can provide you with advice and counsel on how to set up comprehensive mechanisms for ensuring the health and safety of employees in the workplace and facilitating human resource management after the proposed legislation has been adopted.
