Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

740 ILCS 100/3.5

    (740 ILCS 100/3.5)
    (This Section was added by P.A. 89-7, which has been held unconstitutional)
    Sec. 3.5. Contribution against the plaintiff's employer.
    (a) If a tortfeasor brings an action for contribution against the plaintiff's employer, the employer's liability for contribution shall not exceed the amount of the employer's liability to the plaintiff under the Workers' Compensation Act or the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act. The tortfeasor seeking contribution from the plaintiff's employer is not entitled to recover money from the employer. The tortfeasor shall receive a credit against his or her liability to the plaintiff in an amount equal to the amount of contribution, if any, for which the employer is found to be liable to that tortfeasor, even if the amount exceeds the employer's liability under the Workers' Compensation Act or the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act.
    (b) This Section does not apply in any action in which the plaintiff's employer has no right of reimbursement from the plaintiff under subsection (b) of Section 5 of the Workers' Compensation Act or subsection (b) of Section 5 of the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act.
    (c) This amendatory Act of 1995 applies only to causes of action accruing on or after its effective date.
