Heartland Community College is presenting a workshop to help Illinois
employers prepare their businesses for the marijuana legalization
measures going into effect at the beginning of the new year.
On Tuesday, November 19 Heartland will present Cannabis in the
Workplace: Your Policies and Communications. The class will explore how
new legislation affects companies and their employees.
“With Illinois’s upcoming legalization of cannabis, the re-evaluation of
drug-free workplaces and safety policies is becoming a priority for
employers,” said Angie Coughlin, Director of Continuing Education
Outreach and Professional Development. “This workshop will help
participants learn more about how the recreational cannabis law might
impact their business.”

company policies and help participants work to map an effective communication
plan for employees.
