Clark Hill attorney Scott Cruz was recently interviewed by WBBM | CBS Chicago to discuss the legalization of recreational marijuana in Illinois. Cruz explains that lawmakers effectively indemnified employees when they approved recreational marijuana for Illinois. They did this by amending the state’s Right to Privacy in the Workplace Act, a measure that bars employees from taking action against workers who privately consume lawful products, which weed now becomes.
“If they just know you smoked marijuana three weeks ago, an employee tells and employer that, they can’t take action based on that,” Cruz says.
