NEW Illinois Law Prohibiting Use of Criminal Convictions:An Employer’s GuideThursday, April 29, 2021 @ Noon CT
Effective March 23, 2021, new Illinois law generally prohibits the use of criminal convictions in employment decisions and creates additional new hurdles for employers who decide to rely on any conviction for employment purposes-unless otherwise authorized by law.
Join Jeff Risch and Allison Sues on Thursday, April 29 at Noon CT for a timely discussion surrounding the new law. Jeff and Allison have been intimately involved in the underlying legislative process and continue to work with several trade and professional associations in Illinois. Their focus is to help guide employers through this new mandate that prevents all employers from considering a criminal conviction unless there is a substantial relationship between the position and the criminal background history or unless the conviction creates an unreasonable risk to property or the safety of individuals or the general public.
Who should attend? HR Professionals, Recruiters, Hiring Managers and Business Owners.
