Medical Marijuana in the Workplace

Did you know that, within 10 years, the use of medical marijuana is predicted to increase by 10 TIMES its current prevalence? Is your organization ready for the medical and legal implications of this new reality?

We would like to invite you to a “joint offering” on medical marijuana and the workplace, by Fit For Work and McInnes Cooper. Sharon Horan and Denise Maher of Fit For Work will offer their insight about the current medical information, testing procedures, and medical/fitness challenges associated with medical marijuana in the workplace. Chris King of McInnes Cooper will provide a legal perspective to benefit employers in responding to the many considerations surrounding the use of medical marijuana by employees, including employee privacy, human rights/discrimination, and safety in the workplace. This informative, entertaining discussion is not to be missed!

Certification Credits for Attending – 1.5 credits
