(5 ILCS 430/20-70)
Cooperation in investigations.
It is the duty of
every officer and employee under the jurisdiction of an Executive
Inspector General, including any inspector general serving in any
State agency under the jurisdiction of that Executive Inspector
General, to cooperate with the Executive Inspector General and the Attorney General in any
investigation undertaken pursuant to this Act. Failure to cooperate includes, but is not limited to, intentional omissions and knowing false statements. Failure to cooperate
with an investigation of the Executive Inspector General or the Attorney General is grounds
for disciplinary action, including dismissal. Nothing in this Section limits or
alters a person's existing rights or protections under State or federal law.
