Comparison of Recent Illinois, Cook County, and Chicago Paid Leave Laws

February 8, 2024

In 2023, the State of Illinois, Cook County, and the City of Chicago each passed laws requiring employers to provide paid leave to their employees to use for any reason. While the intent behind the three new laws was the same, the three laws are unique and contain distinct requirements for employers. This understandably could be confusing for employers, particularly those who employ workers at more than one location throughout the State of Illinois. Clark Hill Member Jon Vegosen and Senior Attorney Renee Fell have prepared a chart that compares and contrasts the requirements of the three paid leave laws to help employers understand their responsibilities under each law. The chart may be accessed here.
