On Hold: Rules for Illinois’ Paid Leave for All Workers Act


During the latest Joint Committee on Administrative Rules meeting on February 6, 2024, it was decided that additional time is needed to complete the final administrative rules for the Illinois Paid Leave for All Workers Act. The legislation, enacted in January 2023 and implemented last month, requires that all employees in the State receive up to 40 hours of paid leave annually, for any reason. Opinions were voiced that the department did poor outreach to minority business groups and consideration must be given to how this act is going to financially impact local communities and governments. The final administrative rules for the Illinois’ Paid Leave for All Workers Act are on hold until the next Joint Committee Meeting on Administrative Rules scheduled for March 12, 2024.
