Client Alert: Employers Beware: Sweeping Changes to Illinois Employment Laws on the Horizon

28 Aug 2019

Starting in late September and continuing into the new year, several significant employment laws take effect that Governor Pritzker recently signed into law. Starting soon, Illinois employers will no longer be able to ask applicants about their prior salary and wage information. And in 2020, all private employers must provide annual sexual harassment training to all employees, and disclose adverse employment rulings to the Illinois Department of Human Rights. Employers should also revamp their arbitration, confidentiality, and separation agreements to conform to new requirements that will take effect January 1, 2020. This Client Alert, written by Partner Erin E. McAdams, highlights what these laws mean for employers.
