Illinois employers need to be aware of two major changes to employment law. The Illinois Paid Leave for All Workers Act mandates paid leave for ALL employees for any reason beginning January 1, 2024. Now is the time to review your current policies and practices to consider what you will need to do to be in compliance with this new law. Among other things, this new law raises a number of questions for employers, including:
1. What does the new Illinois law on paid leave require?
2. Does my organization fall into any exceptions?
3. How does this state law affect the Cook County and Chicago paid sick leave ordinances that my company is already subject to?
Additionally, recent amendments to Illinois’ One Day Rest in Seven Act became effective on January 1, 2023. These amendments to
assure compliance and prevent new increased penalties for non-compliance concerning meal breaks and rest periods.
Join Attorney Jeff Risch with Amundsen Davis LLC on the latest developments and practical considerations all employers must recognize in light of these new legal mandates.
