ATTENTION Illinois employers of ALL sizes… Are you ready? Are you prepared for what’s coming in 2019? The Illinois Legislature is currently debating and passing new legislation that will forever change how Illinois employers manage harassment and discrimination issues under Illinois law. In fact, the changes will require all employers to update their training practices, key policies, personnel forms, severance agreements and arbitration agreements. The changes will also impact how (and IF) employers will voluntarily resolve employment disputes.
In a very timely presentation conducted by the Chair of the Illinois Chamber’s Employment Law & Litigation Committee, L&E Attorney
Jeff Risch of SmithAmundsen LLC, attendees will receive the very latest recap and summary of key statutory changes coming to Illinois, on
the topic of workplace harassment and discrimination.
