Illinois Cannabis Law

How the New Illinois Cannabis Law

Will Impact Employers [Webinar Recording + Policy Package]

There has been much interest and concern over the passage of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act which has legalized recreational use of Marijuana in the State of Illinois. Our in-house HR consultants have also struggled with what this means for our clients, and have spent a tremendous amount of time analyzing, strategizing, and developing the tools, guidance, and policies that employers need in order to manage through this change. Through that process we developed a drug policy compliance package for Illinois employers to utilize.

Our drug policy package includes:

  • POLICY: A legally compliant, attorney reviewed, Drug Free Workplace Policy for your Employee Handbook.
  • TESTING INFORMATION: Guidance on when you can drug test, when should you drug test, and what to do with a positive result.
  • TOOLS: Instructions and a form to use to document ‘Reasonable Suspicion of Impairment’ which is a critical piece to enforcing your policy, and to taking action against employees who violate it.
  • SITUATIONAL GUIDANCE: Assistance with any employee issues that come up during the year related to this topic.

If you are already a CGO HR Services client, please contact us to find out if this is already included in your service package. If you have not worked with us in the past, and this issue is important to you, please contact us to discuss how we can help at
