New Illinois Child Bereavement Leave

Governor Bruce Rauner signed the Child Bereavement Leave Act into law on July 29, 2016. The Law requires employers with at least fifty (50) employees to provide up to ten (10) working days of unpaid leave for the loss of a child. The Act further provides that an employee cannot take unpaid leave exceeding unpaid leave time available under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
