Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has signed a new bill that mandates paid leave for workers in the state. The law requires employers to provide workers with at least five paid sick days per year, which can be used for a variety of reasons, including illness, medical appointments, and caring for family members. This new law is a significant step forward for workers' rights in Illinois, but it also raises important questions about how employers will comply with the law and what workers can do if they encounter violations. This is where Atlas Consumer Law can provide essential help and support.
