Twenty-Eight Groups Send Letter to Chicago City Council Members on PTO Ordinance

City Council has passed a PTO ordinance that provides greatly expanded paid and sick leave for Chicago employees. The ordinance, however, subjects small businesses to crushing penalties and lawsuits. Many small businesses will also be unable to comply with the mandates of the ordinance by the end of the year. This is an open letter sent to Chicago City Council members asking that amendments be made that protect small businesses and provide a reasonable grace period before the implementation of the ordinance.

Small businesses drive Chicago’s economy and neighborhood businesses create jobs for local residents. We are asking alders to make amendments to the PTO ordinance that provide necessary safeguards to protect Chicago small businesses.
