Local business owners were all ears when learning about marijuana in the workplace.
Carly Stringer, Founder and Lawyer at Stringer Law, was the guest speaker of the Up in Smoke: Marijuana in the Workplace presentation Wednesday at Papa Franco’s Hall.
Stringer says workshops such as hers give employers an opportunity to refresh when it comes to policies in the workplace, as well as to better understand their obligations.
She also says today benefits the employers who were present, by giving them the tools to lessen risks to their business.
However, Stringer says a major problem at this time is the struggle of small businesses with these issues.
Stringer’s presentation is one of many she has made over the past year in the Timmins and surrounding area to prepare local business owners for the possible further legalization of marijuana this summer.
