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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 48, par. 314)
"Employing unit" means any individual or type of organization, including
the State of Illinois, each of its political subdivisions and municipal
corporations, and each instrumentality of any one or more of the foregoing;
and any partnership, association, trust, estate, joint-stock company,
insurance company, or corporation, whether domestic or foreign, or the
receiver, trustee in bankruptcy, trustee or successor thereof, or the legal
representative of a deceased person, which has or subsequent to January 1,
1936, had in its employ one or more individuals performing services for it
within this State. All individuals performing services within this State
for any employing unit which maintains two or more separate establishments
within this State shall be deemed to be employed by a single employing unit
for all purposes of this Act.
A talent or modeling agency that is licensed under the Private
Employment Agency Act is not the employing unit with respect to the performance
of services for which an individual has been referred by the agency.
