HBK Engineering, LLC, participated in a breakfast meeting February 26 hosted by Choose DuPage Economic Alliance and DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin. Under discussion was the Illinois Canabis Regulations and Tax Act. Sandra Arredondo, HBK Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer, attended the meeting which centered on how employers will manage their businesses in light of the new law which legalizes recreational marijuana use.
Most employers in attendance agreed that being trained to understand and recognize impairment versus other factors such as tiredness, low blood sugar, or any number of causes mirroring impaired behavior will be the biggest challenge. DuPage County employers in attendance included representatives from healthcare, labor, government, education and other businesses.
