Palos Park Village last week opted out of the Cook County Earned Sick Time Ordinance, joining ten other municipalities that have already done so. Palos Park opted out of the County minimum wage ordinance as well. I have listed the Cook County “opt-outs” on the PSL Laws and Resources page of my blog. They are listed just below the link to the Cook County Ordinance.
As the July 1 effective date of the Cook County Ordinance draws near, I anticipate more opt-outs. I am watching about a dozen other municipalities that may consider doing so.
