Illinois Labor and Employment Law Update: Part One

2014 Chicago Labor and Employment Breakfast Briefing

The legal landscape is changing constantly. This is particularly true for Illinois employers, where a wave of recent legislative, administrative, judicial, and political changes have altered the state's labor and employment laws. This two-part Breakfast Briefing series in Chicago will look back at 2014 and ahead to 2015 to discuss eleven issues that Illinois employers need to be aware of right now. Part One will cover:

  • Implementation of new medical marijuana law;
  • Concealed carry law;
  • The Illinois Workplace Violence Prevention Act;
  • New "ban the box" legislation;
  • Court decisions regarding non-competition agreements; and
  • Penalties relating to settlement payments.
