Village of Glenview Latest Municipality to Opt Back In to the Cook County Earned Sick Leave Ordinance

On February 7, 2019, the Village of Glenview, Illinois, voted to opt back in to the Cook County Earned Sick Leave Ordinance, effective July 1, 2019. In doing so, Glenview joins the growing list of suburban municipalities to reconsider their previous opt-outs, including Wilmette, Northbrook, and Western Springs. (Of note, Glenview also voted to opt back in to the Cook County Minimum Wage Ordinance.)

Glenview’s decision followed on the heels of a non-binding advisory referendum on the ballot in November in which Glenview voters overwhelmingly voiced their support of the Cook County sick leave and minimum wage ordinances. However, the Glenview ordinance includes a provision which provides that the ordinance will be nullified and repealed if state-wide sick leave legislation is enacted.

The question remains: in light of the growing uncertainty among Cook County municipalities, will the state legislature take the bait?
