In early January 2023, the Illinois General Assembly passed Senate Bill 208, which – if signed by the governor – will enable all employees in the state to accrue up to five days of paid leave per year. This new law would go into effect on January 1, 2024.
NFIB was the only statewide business association that opposed this legislation and was disappointed in its passage.
However, as a service to its members, NFIB Illinois is hosting a series of informational webinars that will assist members with compliance with this new requirement. The first event will take place on Thursday, March 2, at 12 pm CT. NFIB Illinois State Director Chris Davis will lead an overview of the new law, with expert input from employment attorneys Stephanie Mills-Gallan and Meg Karnig of the law firm Littler Mendelson.
