    Up in Smoke: Illinois' Legalization of Recreational Cannabis - What Employers Need to Know

    Beginning January 1, 2020, the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act ("Act"), will allow adults (21+) to legally purchase, possess and consume cannabis. The Act creates significant questions and potential pitfalls for employers on the impact on drug testing and enforcing a drug free workplace or zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy. 

    This timely webinar will be presented by Mike Wong, Labor and Employment Attorney with SmithAmundsen LLC, who will go over the legal risks for Illinois employers starting January 1, 2020. The event is co-sponsored with Illinois Fox Valley SHRM and may be eligible for continuing education credit.

    Topics will include:
    * Adopting and enforcing drug free workplace policies
    * Drug testing in the workplace
    * Best practices to protect your workplace
    * And more!
