Consultation on Impairment in the Workplace

The Government of Saskatchewan is looking for input on possible legislative changes to address impairment in the workplace. In the context of this consultation, "impairment" is considered the state of being mentally or physically diminished, weakened, or damaged as a result of the consumption of alcohol, legal and illegal drugs (including medications), or fatigue.

Recently, the issue of impairment has garnered additional attention as a result of the federal government’s introduction of Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act. With the pending legalization of cannabis, which will come into force on October 17, 2018, there are concerns that an increased consumption of cannabis may result in impairment in the workplace which could place others at risk of injury.

The Government of Saskatchewan is seeking input on possible amendments to clarify the duty of employees to disclose any form of impairment and the duty of employers to accommodate workers that have made a disclosure.
