Synopsis

Drug and alcohol testing, and imposing discipline based on the results, has long been a contentious issue in workplace law. In Stewart v. Elk Valley Coal Corp., 2017 SCC 30, the Supreme Court of Canada held that the termination of an employee with a cocaine addiction was grounded in the employee’s breach of a drug and alcohol policy, and did not amount to discrimination prohibited by human rights legislation. A number of fact-specific considerations relating to the employer’s policy, the available medical evidence, and the safety sensitive context of the worksite were crucial to the Court’s determination. This session will present an analysis and "key takeaways" from the case, as well as an update as to how the case has been recently applied.
