Illinois and DC Area State Law Update

Presented by Aaron R. Gelb and Daniel C. Deacon on February 18th at 1pm ET / 10am PT regarding:


The New Year brings a host of changes and challenges for Illinois employers as the legislature passed and Governor Pritzker signed, in 2019, a variety of new labor and employment laws that go into effect in 2020. These new laws promise to keep employers busy as they revise and update employee handbooks, develop new training programs, reevaluate their arbitration agreements and deal with the decriminalization of marijuana. Beginning in January 2020, employers will be faced with an expanded Illinois Human Rights Act that applies beyond the physical workplace, covers non-employee contractors and protects against discrimination based on perceived (in addition to actual) protected status. There are also special new rules that apply to restaurants, bars and coffee shops as well as disclosure requirements that will necessitate notifying the Department of Human Rights of adverse judgments in employment discrimination or harassment matters.

Participants in this webinar will learn about:

  • What type of harassment training must be provided to employees and when;

  • Which policies and procedures should be reviewed and/or revised;

  • What steps Illinois employers should take if they wish to continue drug testing for cannabis;

  • What they can and cannot do with respect salary inquiries and employee discussions about wages;

  • Potential changes to D.C. drug testing laws

  • Tips to comply with D.C.’s Tipped Wage Workers Fairness Amendment Act of 2018, the Paid Leave Act, and the increased minimum wage
