a) Reporting. All complaints against migrant labor camps and establishments that provide housing for less than 10 migrant workers or 4 families containing migrant workers shall be reported to the Illinois Department of Public Health. Complaints shall contain facts to facilitate the investigation. Complaints by telephone will be accepted. Complaints will be required in writing if needed to support legal action against the licensee.

2) If the complaint concerns less serious violation (i.e. solid waste, insects, etc.), it will be investigated within ten (10) working days of receipt of the complaint.
b) Posting. The Department shall post in every licensed camp, in a location visible to all occupants, the telephone number and address of its closest Regional Office.

e) Notification of Results. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, the complainant will be notified of the results of the investigation and any action taken by the Department.
