Medicinal Marihuana In The Workplace

Over the years, workplaces all over Canada have seen many different issues, in particular regarding smoking and narcotic prescription drugs.

The most recent issue workplaces are struggling with is medicinal marihuana. Marihuana is scarcely viewed as a medicine, which is the biggest issue. It's the employer's responsibility to accommodate both the user and the rest of the employees in compliance with the Human Rights Code. The Code states that disabled employees must be accommodated in the workplace.

It may seem troublesome, but in the end, if you were to put yourself in the shoes of the employee using the medicinal marihuana, it means a lot, it's also the law.
