Passage of Paid Leave for All Workers Act
January 18, 2023
Gov. J.B. Pritzker issued the following statement on the passage of SB208, the Paid Leave for All Workers Act:
“Every working Illinoisan knows that sometimes unavoidable circumstances prevent you from doing your job. However, for too long we have refused to accept this inevitability and penalized workers for dealing with family emergencies, broken down cars, or any of the other life complications we all face. Now, I’m proud to say that the General Assembly has recognized that struggle and passed a bill guaranteeing five days of paid leave for all employees in our state.
