Employment Law Update for Illinois Employers
Presenter: Sonya Rosenberg, Esq. of Neal, Gerber, Eisenberg
The New Year has a number of important legal developments in store for employers in Illinois. Effective January 2015, the Pregnancy Accommodation amendments to the Illinois Human Rights Act will require many employers to update or change their policies and practices with regard to expecting and new mothers. The new Illinois Ban-the-Box legislation will impact application-related procedures. The Payroll Card amendments to the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act, if properly followed, will provide a new, convenient method of payment for many employers in the state. Non-Compete Agreements remain subject to evolving rules and present challenges for employers looking to protect their business in Illinois. And that is just to name a few...
We will focus on what employers need to know about these topics and how to best review and update relevant policies and practices, to ensure compliance and avoid legal pitfalls.
You will have an opportunity to ask Ms. Rosenberg questions at the conclusion of the webinar.
