Illinois just legalized recreational marijuana, effective January 1, 2020. This presents challenges for employers, but there is a way to #DUEIT. Illinois employers should do the following:

  • Discuss how your company wants to treat marijuana
  • Update your drug-screening policies
  • Establish a written procedure for employees to contest a related disciplinary decision
  • And use Impairment Training to help supervisors and managers identify signs and symptoms of impairment

Illinois employers: As recreational marijuana becomes legal, remember to just #DUEIT.
