5 Workplace Policy Areas to Manage Marijuana Risks @ Venn Centre | Moncton | New Brunswick | Canada

The legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada is imminent. Employers are feeling the heat to prepare – even as they continue efforts to manage the impact of increasing medically-authorized marijuana use.  Join Venn and McInnes Cooper Labour & Employment Lawyer Dominique Fontaine,  as, based on recent legal developments, she smokes out the five key policy areas for employers to review and revise, or to create, to manage the workplace risks of marijuana.

Dominique  Fontaine is a bilingual Labour & Employment lawyer. She advises employers daily in offering strategic advice on various legal questions, including the duty to accommodate, human rights, occupational health and safety, terminations and the development or the application of internal policies. She is also experienced in litigation, including wrongful dismissal cases, and has appeared before the New Brunswick Court of Appeal, the Court of Queen’s Bench and the Small Claims Court of New Brunswick.   Dominique is a member of the Human Resources Association of New Brunswick, the Canadian Bar Association, the Law Society of New Brunswick, and the AJEFNB (Association des juristes d’expression française du Nouveau-Brunswick).

Joignez-vous à nous le 28 septembre où Dominique Fontaine, avocate spécialisée en droit du travail et de l’emploi à McInnes Cooper, discutera les cinq domaines politiques à regarder et réviser, ou à établir, pour que les employeurs puissent gérer les risques de la consommation de marijuana au travail.

Dominique Fontaine est avocate bilingue en droit du travail et de l’emploi. Elle conseille des employeurs quotidiennement en les offrant des conseils stratégiques en matière de l’obligation d’adaptation, des droites de l’homme, de la santé et de la sécurité au travail, des cessations d’emploi et de l’élaboration et de la mise en œuvre des politiques internes, entre autres. Elle a aussi de l’expérience des litiges (y compris les cas de renvoi injustifié) et a comparu devant la Cour d’appel du Nouveau-Brunswick, la Cour du Banc de la Reine et la Cour des petites créances du Nouveau-Brunswick. Dominique est membre de l’Association des Ressources Humaines du Nouveau-Brunswick, l’Association du Barreau canadien et l’AJEFNB (Association des juristes d’expression française du Nouveau-Brunswick).
