Enforcement of Just Housing Ordinance Delayed

Cook County Delays JHO Rules

As the January 1, 2020 deadline for implementation of the new law looms, the Cook County Human Rights Commission remains unprepared to handle the questions or to provide the resources necessary regarding the new rules adopted to enforce the Just Housing Amendment (JHO) to the Cook County Housing Ordinance.  In response, the County has agreed this week to delay the enforcement of the JHO until January 31, 2020.  This will allow the Commission to respond to the many questions that have been posed by the housing and rental industry regarding the implementation of this new rule.  To be clear, the new law will be in force on Janaury 1, 2020 but enforcement will not begin until January 31, 2020.
