Yes, You Can Still Be Fired For Using Cannabis: Making Sense of Employment Discrimination Post-Legalization In Illinois

Like most well-intentioned laws, the sweeping legislation known as the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act (CRTA), passed in December 2019, included wide-ranging implications for employees and employers throughout the State. For one, the law effectively made it completely legal to consumer or possess cannabis for personal recreational use. But this left open the question of whether a person could be fired for testing positive for cannabis or cannabinoid compounds. Obviously, employers want to make sure they have a right to prohibit people from operating heavy equipment or showing up to work high. But how does an employer do that?

Free Consultations

Imagine asking someone to pay you for the right to sit down and find out what they’ll have to pay you! Silly?  Yeah, we think so too. Yes, we realize we give away some free time here and there. So what. Point is, we can chat with you a little and figure out if we’re a good fit. If so, great. If not, we can steer you in the right directions. Either way, we don’t charge for consultations.

When you only have one shot to get it right, you need focused and experienced guidance. Whether you are facing the loss of a fundamental right, facing a prison sentence, or need to get maximum compensation for an injury, don't take the "shotgun" approach. So many attorneys operate that way, just throwing everything against the wall hoping something sticks. This wastes your money, it wastes your time, and it doesn't get you the results you want. At Crossroad Legal, we take a "sniper's approach" to litigation. Instead of fumbling along in the mud, we prefer to think of ourselves as elite mercenaries - but we're your mercenaries. We are always happy to help resolve legal issues through careful negotiations and alternative dispute resolution where appropriate. But our team is not afraid to take on the challenging cases. In fact, as many as a third of all our clients come to us after having other lawyers fail to achieve the results they were looking for. We're selective, we're tenacious, we enjoy the fight.
