Cook County Minimum Wage and Sick Leave OPT-OUT

Published on July 31, 2017

On May 22, 2017 the Village Board voted to adopt two Village Code amendments which will require employers within the Village of Hillside to comply only with State and Federal laws regarding sick leave benefits and minimum wage laws and no other regulations; in effect opting-out of the Cook County regulations which were passed in October 2016 and take effect on July 1, 2017.  This means that employers in Hillside will not be required to offer a minimum wage and/or sick time benefits in excess of what was already required by applicable State/Federal laws.
