Illinois Recreational Marijuana Law compliance.
Five Westbrook Corporate Center Link 2- 5 Conference Room Westchester, IL 60154
The Electrical Contractors’ Association of City of Chicago (ECA) is pleased to present a complimentary seminar called, "Reasonable Suspicion Training - (Cannabis-focused)." The program presenter is William Heffernan, Co-founder, Employee Resource Systems, Inc.
This course is geared for contractors and personnel in supervisory roles and provides an an overview of Reasonable Suspicion follow-up concerning the new Recreational Marijuana Law in Illinois. As this new law certainly presents challenges for employers, it also included the amendment of the Illinois Privacy Act that provides protections to employees from adverse employment actions based on use of lawful products off of the premises. The new law also places limits on when an employer may consider an employee "impaired": specifically, the employer must have, "a good faith belief that an employee manifests specific, articulable symptoms while working that decrease or lessen the employee's performance."
Following this class, participants will be able to:
- Understand the roles and responsibilities in making and documenting reasonable suspicion determination
- Understand the costs and dangers of drug abuse in the workplace
- Recognize the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse and controlled substance use
- Know how to approach employees in a professional and respectful manner
- Understand how to initiate the reasonable suspicion process
