Legalization of cannabis will have a large impact on workplaces in ways that alcohol has not. Employers face various cannabis-related issues with respect to health and safety, privacy, accommodation, and even criminal matters. This book provides needed guidance and straightforward analysis, and it identifies areas of possible concern for employers.
