WestJet has updated its alcohol and drug policy ahead of next week’s cannabis legalization, banning recreational use for staff in certain ‘safety-sensitive positions’, even when they aren’t at work.

What do you think of their policy?

If an employee becomes ill, a tremendous strain is put on the employment relationship. Naturally the employee’s health is paramount, and employees are allowed the time to rest and recover. However, there is a strain placed on the employer as well, especially when it comes to planning for the future.
