Unlike neighbors Wilmette, Northbrook and Glenview, which opted out of Cook County’s minimum wage and sick leave ordinances, Northfield chose to opt out of only the sick leave ordinance at its Tuesday, Dec. 5 meeting — at least for now. 

The County passed the ordinances in October 2016 and they took effect on July 1, 2017. Northfield has the authority to opt out as a home-rule community, and more than 100 Cook County suburban communities have opted out of the ordinances.
