Starting in January, all businesses in Illinois — including restaurants and bars — will have to provide workplace sexual harassment prevention trainings for employees. Earlier this month, lawmakers in Springfield approved Senate Bill 75 (the Sexual Harassment Victim Representation Act) which mandates businesses to offer the trainings annually. Failure could result in fines between $500 and $5,000, depending on how many are employed and if it’s a business’s first offense.
