(820 ILCS 105/10) (from Ch. 48, par. 1010)
    Sec. 10. (a) The Director shall make and revise administrative regulations, including definitions of terms, as he deems appropriate to carry out the purposes of this Act, to prevent the circumvention or evasion thereof, and to safeguard the minimum wage established by the Act. Regulations governing employment of learners may be issued only after notice and opportunity for public hearing, as provided in subsection (c) of this Section.
    (b) In order to prevent curtailment of opportunities for employment, avoid undue hardship, and safeguard the minimum wage rate under this Act, the Director may also issue regulations providing for the employment of workers with disabilities at wages lower than the wage rate applicable under this Act, under permits and for such periods of time as specified therein; and providing for the employment of learners at wages lower than the wage rate applicable under this Act. However, such regulation shall not permit lower wages for persons with disabilities on any basis that is unrelated to such person's ability resulting from his disability, and such regulation may be issued only after notice and opportunity for public hearing as provided in subsection (c) of this Section.
    (c) Prior to the adoption, amendment or repeal of any rule or regulation by the Director under this Act, except regulations which concern only the internal management of the Department of Labor and do not affect any public right provided by this Act, the Director shall give proper notice to persons in any industry or occupation that may be affected by the proposed rule or regulation, and hold a public hearing on his proposed action at which any such affected person, or his duly authorized representative, may attend and testify or present other evidence for or against such proposed rule or regulation. Rules and regulations adopted under this Section shall be filed with the Secretary of State in compliance with "An Act concerning administrative rules", as now or hereafter amended. Such adopted and filed rules and regulations shall become effective 10 days after copies thereof have been mailed by the Department to persons in industries affected thereby at their last known address.
    (d) The commencement of proceedings by any person aggrieved by an administrative regulation issued under this Act does not, unless specifically ordered by the Court, operate as a stay of that administrative regulation against other persons. The Court shall not grant any stay of an administrative regulation unless the person complaining of such regulation files in the Court an undertaking with a surety or sureties satisfactory to the Court for the payment to the employees affected by the regulation, in the event such regulation is affirmed, of the amount by which the compensation such employees are entitled to receive under the regulation exceeds the compensation they actually receive while such stay is in effect.
    (e) The Department may adopt emergency rules in accordance with Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act to implement the changes made by this amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly.
