More than fifty-five political subdivisions have opted out of the Cook County Earned Sick Leave Law. That is more than 40% of the County’s approximately 130 municipalities. Eleven days remain for political subdivisions to opt out. I suspect the final number will exceed sixty.
Here are the eleven additions to my nix list: Crestwood, East Hazel Crest, Elgin, Glenview, Hodgkins, LaGrange Park, Lincolnwood, Melrose Park, Morton Grove, Northlake and Orland Hills.
I have listed my Cook County nix list 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.
