Illinois Employer Alert: Two New Posters Required in the Workplace

It is time to put up two new posters in the workplace if you are an Illinois employer.

ILLINOIS SERVICE MEMBER EMPLOYMENT AND REEMPLOYMENT RIGHTS ACT (ISERRA)

On August 26, 2018, Governor Rauner signed into law the Illinois Service Member Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (ISERRA) which takes effect January 1, 2019.

This new law simplifies existing Illinois law by consolidating all of the provisions, including employment protections for Illinois service members. The Illinois Attorney General will enforce the law.

By January 1, 2019, Illinois employers must post a Notice of Rights and Benefits under the Act. Click here to download a copy of the poster.

ILLINOIS HUMAN RIGHTS ACT

Starting on September 18, 2018, Illinois employers with federal and/or state contracts, and employers with 15 or more employees must display the Illinois Department of Human Rights Sexual Harassment and Discrimination in the Workplace poster. Click here to download a copy of the poster.
