Illinois Victims’ Economic Security and Safety Act (VESSA)

The Illinois VESSA poster has been updated. This poster details the employees’ rights to unpaid leave if they are experiencing incidents of domestic, sexual, or gender violence and how much leave is permitted is based on the number of employees. The update includes additional information and expands the protection to victims of gender violence, along with accommodations that the employee is entitled to, and prohibiting employers from discriminating or retaliating against employees for requesting VESSA leave. This poster was updated March 2021.
