Illinois Employment Law Updates for 2020: New Year, New Laws and the Major Impact on Your Workplace - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the latest employment law updates for employers operating in Illinois to minimize legal risks concerning hiring, setting pay rates, collecting, using, storing, and destroying biometric data, sexual harassment training, workplace drug testing policies and more.

Beginning next year, 2020, there are many new developments that may present compliance issues for employers with operations in Illinois if they are not careful.

From new laws addressing equal pay, salary history, wage discussions, and mandatory training sessions and revisions to employers’ handbooks, to recreational marijuana and using artificial intelligence (AI) in the interview process, as well as new court rulings on the state’s Biometric Information Privacy Act, it is clear that now is the time to get up to speed on the practical impact these new developments will have on your workplace.

Use in-depth on-demand webinar on what every employer operating in Illinois should know about the changing legal landscape in the state.  Attorney Jessica Causgrove of Fisher Phillips’ Chicago office will discuss what employers can do to prepare their operations for the changes in 2020.

You’ll learn the latest on:

  • Illinois’ new drug law, which has a January 1, 2020 effective date—and the impact on workplace drug testing policies
  • Where the state’s sexual harassment training law stands—and the likely impact the legislation will have on Illinois-based employers
  • How to determine if workers are engaged in the “same” or “substantially similar” work to ensure that your pay practices are equitable under the Illinois Human Rights Act
  • What not to do when you have questions about a candidate’s salary requirements to ensure compliance with the new state law in effect September 29, 2019—and other wage discussion pitfalls to avoid under this new law
  • New notice, consent, and confidentiality requirements under the newly enacted Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act (HB 2557), in effect January 1, 2020—and the practical impact on the job interview process
  • New court rulings on the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act that could leave your organization vulnerable to class-action lawsuits over the collection, usage, storage, retention, and destruction of biometric information
  • The expansion of the Illinois Human Rights Act and the impact on employers’ employee handbook
