City of Park Ridge opts out of Cook County’s Minimum Wage and Sick Leave Ordinances

The City has received many questions from Park Ridge employers asking whether or not the City opted out of the Cook County ordinances enforcing new minimum wage and paid sick leave requirements which otherwise would have been effective July 1, 2017. 
The City voted to “opt out” of both the minimum wage and sick leave mandates on June 19, 2017.  The City of Park Ridge adopted Ordinance 2017-32 to reflect that Employers located within the City shall only need to comply with all Federal and/or State laws related to the accrual of and eligibility for minimum hourly wages and paid sick leave, as such laws and regulations may exist from time to time.

No additional obligations with regard to paid sick leave or minimum hourly wages, including any additional obligations imposed by the ordinances adopted by Cook County, shall apply to employers located within the City.
