Two More Nix Cook County Earned Sick Leave Law

Evergreen Park and Elk Grove have opted out of the Cook County Earned Sick Leave Law. The Evergreen Park Ordinance is here; the Elk Grove Ordinance is here.   At least fourteen municipalities have opted out of the County Ordinance.  I anticipate more will do so before the County Ordinance’s July 1, 2017 effective date.


I have listed the Cook County “opt-outs” on the PSL Laws and Resources page of my blog, just below the link to the Cook County Ordinance.

Cook County enacted the ESL Ordinance in October 2016. Generally, it requires covered employers to allow employees to accrue one hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked. My posts about that Ordinance are here and here.
