Attention Township Assessors - Adopt Your Personnel Rules

Congratulations to all of our township assessor friends who were installed into office recently.

Please be reminded that, under Section 2-65 of the Illinois Township Code, every township assessor with 5 or more deputies and other employees must adopt rules concerning all benefits available to employees and file them with the township clerk.  Generally, this is accomplished through the adoption of a personnel policy manual.  The rules must include, at a minimum, the following benefits to the extent they are applicable: insurance coverage, compensation, overtime pay, compensatory time off, holidays, vacations, sick leave, and maternity leave.  You should also make sure that any prior rules that you have adopted comply with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act.  In addition, if you have union employees, you may have certain bargaining obligations related to the rule changes.  

The rules must be adopted and filed with the township clerk within 4 months after the assessor takes office. Multi-township assessors must file the rules with the clerk of each township in their district.  If you amend the rules at all, you must also file the amendments with the appropriate township clerk or clerks by their effective date.
