The St. Charles Chamber of Commerce's Education Committee will be hosting a discussion on the anti-harassment law Wednesday, Oct. 23, at St. Charles City Hall, 2 E. Main St.

This will provide a forum to learn and discuss major changes in Illinois employment laws.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Governor J.B. Pritzker signed Senate Bill 75 -- the Workplace Transparency Act -- into law.

Effective Jan. 1, 2020, major new changes will forever alter how Illinois employers manage harassment and discrimination issues as well as other workplace controversies.

These changes will require all employers to update their training practices, key policies, personnel forms, severance agreements and arbitration agreements.

The changes also will impact how (and if) employers will voluntarily resolve employment disputes or litigate such disputes not only in Illinois but anywhere in the United States.

Program will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude at 10 a.m.

This event is free, but registration is required.
