What are my obligations to disclose medical cannabis use to my employer?

Employees have an obligation to disclose their medical cannabis use to their employer only if it may impact their ability to perform their job safely and effectively. If the use of medical cannabis does not affect an employee’s ability to do their job, there may be no obligation to disclose it to their employer. However, if an employee’s job involves safety-sensitive duties or requires operating heavy machinery, they may be required to disclose their medical cannabis use to their employer. Employers have a duty to accommodate employees with disabilities to the point of undue hardship, and this may include accommodating medical cannabis use in certain circumstances. Ultimately, the obligation to disclose medical cannabis use will depend on the specific circumstances of the employee and their job.
