Joint Committee on Administrative Rules Postpones Hearing on Illinois Paid Leave Rules

Date: February 09, 2024

The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) postponed consideration of the Department of Labor’s proposed rules for the Paid Leave for All Workers Act until its March meeting.

During JCAR’s hearing on February 6, lawmakers chastised the department for failing conduct sufficient outreach to the employer community and its timeline for publishing rules.

The rules were submitted to JCAR just days before its scheduled hearing and over a year after the passage of the act and nearly 11 months after Governor Pritzker signed the legislation into law.

They are now scheduled to be heard at JCAR’s next scheduled meeting on March 12.
