This presentation will assist employers, HR professionals, and in-house attorneys in reviewing their policies and practices to ensure compliance with recent state, local, and federal employment law changes. We will cover topics that should be at the top of every Illinois employer’s list, including:

  • Recreational marijuana use and its impacts on your workplace policies
  • The new Illinois “#MeToo” law requiring sweeping changes for employers
  • Amendments to the Equal Pay Act, the Illinois Human Rights Act, and the Wage Payment and Collection Act
  • Changes to paid and unpaid leave, including military rights and the Chicago and Cook County Paid sick leave ordinances
