Paid Time Off is Not Just Personal Time Off


Cook County recently passed a Paid Sick Leave Ordinance which is resulting in Human Resources headaches across the area. This new ordinance is creating a trend to offer employees two Paid Time Off categories, one for personal PTO and one for sick time. This change is taking place throughout the country. States including California, Connecticut, Oregon, and New York have implemented paid sick leave as an additional PTO bucket and as of July 1, 2017, Cook County joined the initiative here in Illinois.
