The World Cup kicked off on Thursday - and employers may find themselves managing competing requests for time off or transfers to another shift, as well as a spike in unauthorised absences. Vicky Schollar offers some tactically astute HR advice.

With the imminent legalization of marijuana, some employers worry their workplace cultures, safety in particular, will go to pot. Before the legalization takes effect, it is important employers get all the facts about the law and learn how they can create policies that will help maintain a safe workplace.
The legalization of marijuana is expected to take effect as early as July 1, 2018. Once legalization takes effect, adults will be permitted to purchase, possess, distribute and even grow marijuana (to a certain extent).
Under the new regime, the federal government will oversee the production and manufacturing components of marijuana legalization, while the provinces and territories will be responsible for further regulations and restrictions, such as increasing the minimum age, lowering possession limits or restricting places in which consumption is acceptable.
