In order to conform to their respective duties, JTC Staffing Solutions workers are required to report to the workplace fit for work.
JTC Staffing Solutions has a “zero tolerance” policy for the use of substances by employees that cause impairment while “at work.” With the exception of a legitimate prescription for medical purposes, the consumption of substances on the job is prohibited. The use of cannabis/marijuana is prohibited while at work, regardless of whether an employee has a legitimate medical prescription. This involves using electronic cannabis/marijuana-containing cigarettes.
Circumstances related to the usage and use of cannabis for medical purposes in the workplace and during working hours will be handled by the Site Manager on a case-by-case basis.
If an employee has a drug or alcohol abuse disease, in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code, they must report their dependence to the Site Manager in order to identify risks and review accommodation options. If the staff are unable to accommodate GAIA Treatment and the Contracted Long-Term Care services, then they will not be permitted to return to work until they can provide a doctor’s note stating that they have been rehabilitated.
Unless recovery can be confirmed, an employee listed as mentioned above would be entitled to job protection.
This is the alcohol, tobacco, and cannabis usage and impairment policy of JTC Staffing Solutions in the workplace, which sets the minimum standards for JTC Staffing Solutions workers to comply with while on-site in contracted Long-Term Care homes.
If a policy that is more restrictive/detailed than this policy is given by the contracted Long-Term Care Home where the employee works, the employee must adhere to the specifications of the policy of the home while staying in accordance with the expectations of JTC Staffing Solutions as outlined in this document. If an employee is unaware of their responsibilities about the use and impairment of alcohol, narcotics and cannabis in the workplace, they should contact their Site Manager for clarification.
