On August 11, 2023, Governor J.B. Pritzker signed an amendment to the Illinois Equal Pay Act that mandates new pay transparency requirements for most Illinois employers.

New Pay Transparency Requirements

Effective January 1, 2025, the amendment requires all public and private employers in Illinois with 15 or more employees to provide pay scale and benefits information in all open job postings. This means that covered employees must provide the following information for each posted position:

The Paid Leave for All Workers Act, expected to be signed soon by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, would require nearly all covered Illinois employers to provide employees paid leave to be used for any purpose. Illinois would be just the third state to mandate paid leave – only Maine and Nevada have similar laws.

Once signed, the Act would take effect on Jan. 1, 2024, and provide nearly all Illinois workers with a minimum of 40 hours of paid leave, or a pro rata number of hours, during a designated twelve-month period.
