Impairment in the workforce can be difficult to detect, control and manage. This breakfast seminar aims to provide practical insight on how employers can effectively manage drugs and alcohol in the workplace.
Our presenters will provide answers to the following questions that will be useful in your workplace, such as:

  • What drug and alcohol testing is now permissible?
  • When can you insist an employee be tested?
  • What addiction accommodations might you be required to implement?
  • When will accommodation amount to an undue hardship?

Speakers: Brian Smeenk, Marc Rodrigue
