Illinois employers face challenges with new laws

In Illinois, there is growing concern and confusion amongst employers on how to handle the recently passed medical marijuana use law and the concealed carry law.  Chicago Partner Mark Spognardi recently had two articles published regarding these laws. The first article titled, “Illinois Enacts Medicinal Cannabis Pilot Program Law” was published in Pharmaceutical Compliance Monitor on October 9. The law will go into effect on January 1 and the article clearly defines the details of this law, as well as what employers can do to prepare. To read the article in full, please click here.

The second article titled, “Illinois employers face firearms obligations and choices,” was published on October 14 on Inside Counsel’s website. The article is stemmed off of a recent decision by the CEO of Starbucks asking the public and its employees to not bring firearms into their store, unless they are licensed peace officers. This article provides an overview of how the new law will affect employers. To read the article in full, please click here.
