Illinois Publishes Paid Leave for All Workers Act FAQs

The Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) has provided helpful FAQs for workers and employers to answer specific yet common questions about the state’s Paid Leave for All Workers Act. 

The Act takes effect January 1, 2024. Accrual begins upon the start of employment or January 1, 2024, whichever is later. Employees are entitled to begin using the accrued paid leave after 90 days.  If an employee begins accruing paid leave on January 1, 2024, the first day they could take that paid time off would be March 31, 2024.
