Northbrook Opts In After Opting Out of Cook County Sick Leave Ordinance

The Northbrook Village (IL) Board of Trustees were against the Cook County Earned Sick Leave Ordinance before they were for it. Last year, the Board voted to opt out of the County law. Earlier this week, the Board repealed its opt-out ordinance, opting in to the County sick leave law effective January 1, 2019.

Approximately 80% of the County’s municipalities opted out of the its Earned Sick Leave Law.  Two other Cook County villages have revisited their initial opt out decisions. The Village of Western Springs in April reversed its opt out decision while Wilmette Village  voted to continue to opt out of the County sick leave law.
