“Loader truck operator who tested positive for cocaine not fired due to addiction: Supreme Court of Canada” by Canadian Underwriter

The Canadian Underwriter quotes Toronto lawyer, Norm Keith, in an article regarding a coal mining company that did not violate the Alberta Human Rights Act when terminating an employee who tested positive for cocaine.

“Employers have limited tools available to prevent drug and alcohol abuse in safety sensitive environments,” given the Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling, released in 2013, against Irving Pulp & Paper Ltd., wrote Norm Keith, Yael Wexler and Marc Rodrigue. They made those comments in a factum on behalf of the Ontario General Contractors Association, the Ontario Formwork Association and the Greater Toronto Sewer and Watermain Construction Association.
