(820 ILCS 125/9) (from Ch. 48, par. 198.9)
    Sec. 9. If the Department has reason to believe that any employer is not observing the provisions of any order made by it under section 7 of this act the Department may, on fifteen days' notice summon such employer to appear before it to show cause why the name of such employer should not be published as having failed to observe the provisions of such order. After such hearing and the finding of non-observance, the Department may cause to be published in a newspaper or newspapers circulating within the State of Illinois or in such other manner as may be deemed appropriate, the name of any such employer or employers as having failed in the respects stated to observe the provisions of the directory order. Neither the Department nor any authorized representative thereof, nor any newspaper publisher, proprietor, editor, nor employee thereof shall be liable to an action for damages for publishing the name of any employer as provided for in this Act, unless guilty of some wilful misrepresentation.
