Illinois Child Bereavement Leave: Handbook Statement Added

Author: Melissa Gonzalez Boyce, XpertHR Legal Editor

Effective July 29, 2016, the Illinois Child Bereavement Leave Act requires Illinois private employers with 50 or more employees to provide an employee with up to two weeks (10 workdays) of unpaid bereavement leave relating to the death of a child.

As a result of this development, the Child Bereavement Leave Handbook Statement: Illinois has been added to the Illinois handbook and the table of contents has been updated.
