Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Equal Pay Act of 2003. Prohibits an employer from: (i) screening job applicants based on their wage or salary history, (ii) requiring that an applicant's prior wages satisfy minimum or maximum criteria, and (iii) requesting or requiring as a condition of being interviewed or as a condition of continuing to be considered for an offer of employment that an applicant disclose prior wages or salary. Prohibits an employer from seeking the salary, including benefits or other compensation or salary history, of a job applicant from any current or former employer. Limits defenses. Provides for penalties and injunctive relief.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 2462 would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 2462 will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling, a single-family residence.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This legislation would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This legislation has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 The Illinois Department of Transportation has determined that no land conveyance is necessary for this bill.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This legislation does not create a State mandate.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 This bill will have a negative fiscal impact on the State by increasing the workload on Illinois Department of Labor as it expands the Equal Pay Act to include newly prohibited activity. This increase in costs is not included in the Governor's FY18 proposed budget. There are no proposed revenues or offsetting budget reductions to support these increased costs. It is unknown how much additional operational cost it will bring to the Department at this point, therefore an accurate cost assessment cannot be determined.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Revenue)
 With passage of this bill, the Department of Revenue will need to add at least (1) full time staff. The increase in staff would consist of a Labor Conciliator. Additional administrative costs include postage, office supplies and new employee IT equipment and licensing. Fiscal Impact = $162,000.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides exceptions to the applicability of a provision stating that it is unlawful for an employer to seek the wage or salary history of any job applicant from any current or former employer.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Labor)
 With passage of this bill, the Department of Labor will need to add at least 1 full time staff. The increase in staff would consist of a Labor Conciliator. Additional administrative costs include postage, office supplies and new employee IT equipment and licensing. Fiscal Impact = $162,000.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.
