Required Posting for Illinois Employers
Required posting for Illinois employers:
Effective May 1, 2020, and in accordance with Governor Pritzker’s most recent Executive Order (2020-32), all Illinois businesses including for-profit, not-for-profit and educational entities that have employees physically reporting to a worksite are required to post in their place of business the Workplace Health and Safety Guidance for Employees and Staff of Businesses issued by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Office of the Illinois Attorney General.
The Guidance provides information to employees about employers’ requirements designed to protect employees’ health and safety in the workplace. Included are the social distancing requirements for employers and a list of COVID-19 symptoms to determine whether employees should stay home from work and call their doctors. The Guidance also provides government enforcement information for employees concerned about employers failing to maintain social distancing requirements and health department information for employees who want to report that they believe two or more employees in the workplace have COVID-1. Section 5 of the Executive Order makes the posting of this Guidance in the workplace mandatory. The Guidance is on the IDPH webpage and can be accessed and printed here.
