Illinois Legislative Update -- Part I: Marijuana and Other Key Legislation

Monday, July 22, 2019


ILLINOIS LEGISLATIVE UPDATE -- PART I:
Marijuana and Other Key Legislation


Conducted By:  Clark Baird Smith LLP

Employment law aspects of the pending marijuana bill:  Recreational marijuana presumably will be legal in Illinois on January 1, 2020 ... find out the impact this could have on your workplace and what employer rights presumably will be under the new law

Other significant employment law changes:  The 2019 spring legislative session also has advanced a variety of other employment bills for Governor Pritzker's consideration, including:
  • The proposed Workplace Transparency Act, and other workplace harassment reform measures that will affect the legality of various hiring and separation terms like employee arbitration and confidentiality clauses
  • Proposed amendments to the Illinois Human Rights Act that broaden its jurisdictional reach and substantive terms, as well as add annual "adverse judgment" reporting requirements and annual sexual harassment training obligations for an employer's entire workforce.
  • Proposed amendments to the Illinois Equal Pay Act, which will severely limit an employer's ability to question job applicants about their salary history, and potentially resuscitate the long-rejected concept of "comparable worth."
This training is intended only for management personnel who are not represented by a labor union.  This includes HR Directors, Managers, and Department Heads.

ATTORNEYS:  Approval pending for 2.75 general CLE credits
