Illinois’ Employment Laws
Beginning in March, 2021, the state of Illinois has amended employment
laws to protect residents of Illinois in the workplace.
Some of the most significant amendments include:
- The Illinois Human Rights Act now includes a definition of a conviction
record and has strict requirements regarding the use of conviction records
when determining employment.
- The Illinois Business Corporation Act now requires businesses (domestic
and foreign) to file their annual reports with the Illinois Secretary
of State. They must also file an Employer Information Report with the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
- The Illinois Equal Pay Act now includes provisions that require private
sector employers who have more than 100 employees in the state to file
an equal pay certificate with the Illinois Department of Labor every 2
years. This certificate must include the ethnicity, gender, and race of
every Illinois employee as well as their annual wages.
To learn more about these laws, read about them on the
official Illinois government website.
