Our friends at Epstein Becker & Green, P.C. have created a detailed summary of the most significant employment-related legislation recently enacted in Illinois. The piece is co-authored by Member of the Firm, Peter Steinmeyer, and Associate Carolyn Boucek.
Applying these new laws involves a fact-specific inquiry, especially in light of the many statutory ambiguities discussed more fully below, as well as the inherent uncertainty surrounding the interplay of new and existing authorities and the current lack of interpretive guidance from the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL).
Unless otherwise noted, all new laws and amendments discussed in the article will take effect on January 1, 2024; however, employers should take measures now to ensure that they are prepared to comply with the new laws come the new year.
The publication has nine sections extensively covering the changes for employers. The sections are as follows.
