Updated Chicago Paid Leave Notice


On July 7, 2020, the City of Chicago updated the notice required by its paid sick leave (PSL) ordinance. As background, employers must provide employees with PSL to care for themselves (or a family member) if they work at least 80 hours within any 120-day period (eligible for use by the 180th day of employment).

As a reminder, recent changes to Chicago’s paid sick leave rules require employers to provide covered employees with an individual paid sick leave notice along with their first paycheck subject to the PSL ordinance (and annually thereafter), among other requirements such as a workplace posting. (See the Compliance Corner article from May 27, 2020, “Chicago Enhances Paid Sick Leave Ordinance” for additional information).

The ordinance applies to all employers with at least one covered employee. Employers with employees in Chicago should utilize the updated notice and ensure compliance with the PSL ordinance and revised rules effective July 1, 2020.
