SPRINGFIELD – Illinois workers will be seeing some changes in 2023, especially those who work long hours in the state. The updated rules to the One Day Rest in Seven Act gives workers the right to a day of rest every workweek and breaks for meals or rest during shifts. The new rules require employees be given a 20-minute break if working a 12-hour shift or longer, and at least 24 consecutive hours of rest in every consecutive 7-day period. Illinois’ minimum wage will also be increasing from $12 to $13 on January 1st.
“The One Day Rest in Seven Act is a critical law that protects the wellbeing of workers in our State,” said Jane R. Flanagan, Director of the Illinois Department of Labor. “If employees are being asked to work longer hours by their employer, it is only fair to ensure that these employees also get additional break time.”
