About the Program

The first half of 2024 has already seen a number of major developments in the paid sick leave and paid time off law space, with critically important overhauls coming online in Midwestern states. Major new programs have rolled out in Illinois and Minnesota, with significant amendments also enacted in Chicago and Cook County (IL).

Each of these programs present their own challenges for employers, including interplay with existing laws, compliance and enforcement, and their impact on other leave programs. 

Join our experienced attorneys for this pivotal program, where they will discuss:

  1. What makes the Illinois, Cook County, and Chicago programs so unique, and their impact on employers,
  2. Steps to take as the July 1, 2024 implementation date to comply with Chicago Paid Leave and Paid Sick and Safe Leave Ordinance approaches,
  3. Implementation nuances of the Minnesota statewide ESST Law, including recent amendments from May 2024, and how they impact existing local paid sick leave mandates in Minnesota,
  4. Compliance challenges for both states, and best practices for employers to update their policies and programs, and
  5. A forecast of states and localities that may follow in the footsteps of these paid sick leave and paid time off law developments.
