Welcome to this month’s HR podcast with Rob, Scott, and Jason, where we dive into changes brought by the Illinois Paid Leave for All Workers Act, scheduled to take effect on January 1st, 2024. In this episode, we break down some of the key components of the law, which mandates up to 40 hours of paid leave for every employee, regardless of the reason. We also discuss the implications for businesses, the adjustments needed for compliance, the potential impact on various industries, and more.
Even if your company is based in another state but has employees in Illinois, this will affect your business. With just under 60 days until this policy takes effect, it’s crucial for businesses to gear up for compliance to avoid penalties.
