(820 ILCS 175/85)
    Sec. 85. Third party clients.
    (a) It is a violation of this Act for a third party client to enter into a contract for the employment of day or temporary laborers with any day and temporary labor service agency not registered under Section 45 of this Act. A third party client has a duty to verify a day and temporary labor service agency's status with the Department before entering into a contract with such an agency, and on March 1 and September 1 of each year. A day and temporary labor service agency shall be required to provide each of its third party clients with proof of valid registration issued by the Department at the time of entering into a contract. A day and temporary labor service agency shall be required to notify, both by telephone and in writing, each day or temporary laborer it employs and each third party client with whom it has a contract within 24 hours of any denial, suspension, or revocation of its registration by the Department. All contracts between any day and temporary labor service agency and any third party client shall be considered null and void from the date any such denial, suspension, or revocation of registration becomes effective and until such time as the day and temporary labor service agency becomes registered and considered in good standing by the Department as provided in Section 50 and Section 55. Upon request, the Department shall provide to a third party client a list of entities registered as day and temporary labor service agencies. The Department shall provide on the Internet a list of entities registered as day and temporary labor service agencies. A third party client may rely on information provided by the Department or maintained on the Department's website pursuant to Section 45 of this Act and shall be held harmless if such information maintained or provided by the Department was inaccurate. Any third party client that violates this provision of the Act is subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $500. Each day during which a third party client contracts with a day and temporary labor service agency not registered under Section 45 of this Act shall constitute a separate and distinct offense.
    (b) If a third party client leases or contracts with a day and temporary service agency for the services of a day or temporary laborer, the third party client shall share all legal responsibility and liability for the payment of wages under the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act and the Minimum Wage Law.
