Appellate Court vacates previous Cook County ruling


CHICAGO, IL – Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger released the following statement Friday in response to the First District Appellate Court’s decision to vacate the Cook County Circuit Court’s order to pay certain state employees at minimum wage:

“Today’s ruling removes any conflict between Court decisions and allows my office to continue paying all state employees for their work. My priority has consistently been to comply with federal mandates and do everything in my power under the law to pay workers for services they are already providing the state. Time will tell what, if any, additional Court action occurs but I remain confident that paying state employees for their work is the legal, fiscally responsible and right thing to do.”
