sarkmany.jpg

Canada has legalized recreational cannabis. Is your organization prepared?

What are the rights, responsibilities, and risks to employers regarding cannabis in the workplace? What is
the impact of recreational or medical use of this drug on your organization and for those in safety-
sensitive positions? For medical use, how do you manage the duty to accommodate process? Do you
have the appropriate policy framework in place to face related challenges?

The Presenter:
Pamela Bragg is the owner of Sarkany Management Inc., a Human Resources Consulting firm, which offers a
a broad range of HR services- however, the majority of her time is currently being spent on helping her
clients better understand the impact of both recreational and medicinal cannabis on the workplace, and
assisting them through the Canadian legalization process through policy development and management
training.

 

Pamela has a comprehensive background in human resources including being Senior HR Director for a
multi-national construction materials firm where she led a US Canada advisory team on understanding
the impact of legalization of cannabis on the employer-employee relationship. She holds a Masters
Certificate in Strategic Human Resources & Masters Certificate in Organizational Change.
