During the Illinois Legislature’s lame-duck session, Senate Bill 1480 passed in Springfield and is currently being reviewed by the Governor. The legislation focuses on 2 central topics that will impact employers throughout Illinois.This webinar will focus on the first part of SB 1480 which is criminal conviction
restrictions. The second portion focusing on the New Equal Pay and Reporting Mandates will be covered on March 10, 2021.
Employers will be limited and greatly regulated in the use of a Criminal Conviction in the application process or during the employment relationship. While the legislation is intended to help minority workers obtain work and better job opportunities in Illinois, the legislation now awaiting the Governor’s review creates new burdens on employers that will substantially change how employers recruit, hire, terminate and pay its workers throughout Illinois.
This 90-minute webinar will be presented by Labor & Employment Attorney, Jeff Risch, and will focus on SB 1480’s CRIMINAL CONVICTION restrictions. Attorney Risch has been intimately involved in the legislative process with the Illinois Chamber and will identify exactly what employers need to know and implement in response to the new mandates.
