New Sick Leave Laws Effective 7/1/17, Are You Affected?

73-TEG-Staff-2014-CropMarcus Neumaier, SHRM-CP, HR Generalist | Jun 26, 2017

Effective 7/1/17 there will be new laws going into effect for the state of AZ, Cook County (IL), the city of Chicago, and the city of Minneapolis. Though these laws may have some differences between them, what they have in common is that employers in these regions now have to provide their employees with some form of sick leave.

The Employer Group stays abreast with the ever-changing legal landscape not only on a national level, but at local levels as well. PEO clients of The Employer Group will be contacted when a new law affects them and provided guidance on how to ensure compliance.

More information on the Arizona law can be found at the link below.
