Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. Redefines "employer" to mean any business or enterprise that employs 65 or more (rather than 75 or more) employees, excluding part-time employees; or 65 or more (rather than 75 or more) employees who in the aggregate work at least 2,600 (rather than 4,000) hours per week (exclusive of hours of overtime). Provides that an employer may not order a mass layoff, relocation, or employment loss unless, 90 (rather than 60) days before the order takes effect, the employer gives written notice of the order to certain persons. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 It is anticipated that House Bill 813 would increase the number of formal Workforce Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) notices that are submitted to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The Department's Office of Employment and Training (OET) estimates that an additional to 1 full-time equivalent staff member would be required to support the Department's WARN notice and Rapid Response responsibilities. The salary, benefits and associated overhead costs for one full-time position is estimated at $160,000.

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