The Real Cost Of Non-Compliance — Attend FREE Workshop May 12th In Rolling Meadows

The Affordable Care Act, OSHA and Medical Marijuana — what you need to know

Next week our strategic partner, Manufacturing Insurance Services of Illinois [MIS], will be conducting a free educational workshop in Rolling Meadows. The focus of this event will center around three specific topics we feel are extremely relevant to manufacturers in Illinois: The Affordable Care Act, OSHA, and Medical Marijuana.

MIS has partnered with leading industry professionals to develop an extremely informative seminar. The agenda has been designed to educate you on the state of our evolving legislative landscape and help your business maintain compliance in Illinois’ changing business environment.

The REAL Cost of Non-Compliance — May 12, 2015, 9:00 am–12:00 noon,

Where: JC Restoration, 3200 Squibb Ave., Rolling Meadows — Cost: FREE


The Affordable Care Act (ACA) represents the biggest government-backed expansion of the United States healthcare system since Medicare.  Amidst the myriad of mandates and taxes are a host of compliance requirements for employers and individuals alike.  This workshop is designed to provide attendees with an easy to navigate compliance roadmap coupled with pre-packaged compliance solutions to help alleviate your ACA-related headaches.   The time for compliance is now.  Are you ready?


An OSHA inspector just showed up at your door – unannounced – and wants to conduct an inspection. What do you do? Because OSHA inspections are unannounced, it is imperative that you preplan your inspection strategy. The financial implications of an OSHA inspection can be crippling to a business, but the fines and penalties imposed are just the tip of the fiscal iceberg. Attendees will learn about their rights during a surprise inspection and the potential cost of unpreparedness. Is your business prepared?


In 2014, the state of Illinois took significant steps in the decriminalization of marijuana. As lawmakers continue to construct the legislation that will govern the distribution and use of medicinal marijuana, business owners should understand the impact of medicinal marijuana use on their day-to-day operations. Hiring / firing procedures, zero tolerance drug testing policies, workers’ compensation, and ADA compliance are just a few issues that could be affected in 2015 and beyond. Don’t let ignorance of the law send your business up in smoke!
