Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

EMPLOYMENT
(820 ILCS 175/) Day and Temporary Labor Services Act.

820 ILCS 175/1

    (820 ILCS 175/1)
    Sec. 1. Short Title. This Act may be cited as the Day and Temporary Labor Services Act.
(Source: P.A. 91-579, eff. 1-1-00; 92-783, eff. 1-1-03.)

820 ILCS 175/2

    (820 ILCS 175/2)
    Sec. 2. Legislative Findings. The General Assembly finds as follows:
    Over 300,000 workers work as day or temporary laborers in Illinois.
    Approximately 150 day labor and temporary labor service agencies with nearly 600 branch offices are licensed throughout Illinois. In addition, there is a large, though unknown, number of unlicensed day labor and temporary labor service agencies that operate outside the radar of law enforcement.
    Recent studies and a survey of low-wage day or temporary laborers themselves finds that as a group, they are particularly vulnerable to abuse of their labor rights, including unpaid wages, failure to pay for all hours worked, minimum wage and overtime violations, and unlawful deduction from pay for meals, transportation, equipment and other items.
    Current law is inadequate to protect the labor and employment rights of these workers.
    At the same time, in Illinois and in other states, democratically run nonprofit day labor centers, which charge no fee for their services, have been established to provide an alternative for day or temporary laborers to solicit work on street corners. These centers are not subject to this Act.

    "Day and temporary labor service agency" means any person or entity engaged in the business of employing day or temporary laborers to provide services, for a fee, to or for any third party client pursuant to a contract with the day and temporary labor service agency and the third party client.

    Sec. 10. Employment Notice.
    (a) Whenever a day and temporary labor service agency agrees to send one or more persons to work as day or temporary laborers, the day and temporary labor service agency shall provide to each day or temporary laborer, at the time of dispatch, a statement containing the following items on a form approved by the Department:

    If the day or temporary laborer is not placed with a third party client or otherwise contracted to work for that day, the day and temporary labor service agency shall, upon request, provide the day and temporary laborer with a confirmation that the day or temporary laborer sought work, signed by an employee of the day and temporary labor service agency, which shall include the name of the agency, the name and address of the day or temporary laborer, and the date and the time that the day or temporary laborer receives the confirmation.
    (b) No day and temporary labor service agency may send any day or temporary laborer to any place where a strike, a lockout, or other labor trouble exists.

820 ILCS 175/12

    (820 ILCS 175/12)
    Sec. 12. Recordkeeping.
    (a) Whenever a day and temporary labor service agency sends one or more persons to work as day or temporary laborers, the day and temporary labor service agency shall keep the following records relating to that transaction:
        (1) the name, address and telephone number of each
    
third party client, including each worksite, to which day or temporary laborers were sent by the agency and the date of the transaction;
        (2) for each day or temporary laborer: the name and
    
address, the specific location sent to work, the type of work performed, the number of hours worked, the hourly rate of pay and the date sent. The term "hours worked" has the meaning ascribed to that term in 56 Ill. Adm. Code 210.110 and in accordance with all applicable rules or court interpretations under 56 Ill. Adm. Code 210.110. The third party client shall be required to remit all information required under this subsection to the day and temporary labor service agency no later than 7 days following the last day of the work week worked by the day or temporary laborer. Failure of a third party client to remit such information to a day and temporary labor service agency shall not be a defense to the recordkeeping requirement of this Section;
        (3) the name and title of the individual or
    
individuals at each third party client's place of business responsible for the transaction;
        (4) any specific qualifications or attributes of a
    
day or temporary laborer, requested by each third party client;
        (5) copies of all contracts, if any, with the third
    
party client and copies of all invoices for the third party client;
        (6) copies of all employment notices provided in
    
accordance with subsection (a) of Section 10;
        (7) deductions to be made from each day or temporary
    
laborer's compensation made by either the third party client or by the day and temporary labor service agency for the day or temporary laborer's transportation, food, equipment, withheld income tax, withheld social security payments and every other deduction;
        (8) verification of the actual cost of any equipment
    
or meal charged to a day or temporary laborer;
        (9) the race and gender of each day or temporary
    
laborer sent by the day and temporary labor service agency, as provided by the day or temporary laborer; and
        (10) any additional information required by rules
    
issued by the Department.
    (b) The day and temporary labor service agency shall maintain all records under this Section for a period of 3 years from their creation. The records shall be open to inspection by the Department during normal business hours. Records described in paragraphs (1), (2), (3), (6), (7), and (8) of subsection (a) shall be available for review or copying by that day or temporary laborer during normal business hours within 5 days following a written request. In addition, a day and temporary labor service agency shall make records related to the number of hours billed to a third party client for that individual day or temporary laborer's hours of work available for review or copying during normal business hours within 5 days following a written request. The day and temporary labor service agency shall make forms, in duplicate, for such requests available to day or temporary laborers at the dispatch office. The day or temporary laborer shall be given a copy of the request form. It is a violation of this Section to make any false, inaccurate or incomplete entry into any record required by this Section, or to delete required information from any such record. Failure by the third party client to remit time records to the day and temporary labor service agency as provided in paragraph (a)(2) shall constitute a notice violation by a third party client under Section 95 of this Act unless the third party client has been precluded from submitting such time records for reasons beyond its control. A failure by the third party client to provide time records in accordance with this subsection (b) shall not be a notice violation and shall not be the basis for a suit or other action under Section 95 of this Act against the day and temporary labor service agency.

820 ILCS 175/20

    (820 ILCS 175/20)
    Sec. 20. Transportation.
    (a) A day and temporary labor service agency or a third party client or a contractor or agent of either shall charge no fee to transport a day or temporary laborer to or from the designated work site.
    (b) A day and temporary labor service agency is responsible for the conduct and performance of any person who transports a day or temporary laborer from the agency to a work site, unless the transporter is: (1) a public mass transportation system as defined in Section 2 of the Local Mass Transit District Act; (2) a common carrier; (3) the day or temporary laborer providing his or her own transportation; or (4) selected exclusively by and at the sole choice of the day or temporary laborer for transportation in a vehicle not owned or operated by the day and temporary labor service agency. If any day and temporary labor service agency provides transportation to a day or temporary laborer or refers a day or temporary laborer as provided in subsection (c), the day and temporary labor service agency may not allow a motor vehicle to be used for the transporting of day or temporary laborers if the agency knows or should know that the motor vehicle used for the transportation of day or temporary laborers is unsafe or not equipped as required by this Act or by any rule adopted under this Act, unless the vehicle is: (1) the property of a public mass transportation system as defined in Section 2 of the Local Mass Transit District Act; (2) the property of a common carrier; (3) the day or temporary laborer's personal vehicle; or (4) a vehicle of a day or temporary laborer used to carpool other day or temporary laborers and which is selected exclusively by and at the sole choice of the day or temporary laborer for transportation.
    (c) A day and temporary labor service agency may not refer a day or temporary laborer to any person for transportation to a work site unless that person is (1) a public mass transportation system as defined in Section 2 of the Local Mass Transit District Act or (2) providing the transportation at no fee. Directing the day or temporary laborer to accept a specific car pool as a condition of work shall be considered a referral by the day and temporary labor service agency. Any mention or discussion of the cost of a car pool shall be considered a referral by the agency. Informing a day or temporary laborer of the availability of a car pool driven by another day or temporary laborer shall not be considered a referral by the agency.
    (d) Any motor vehicle that is owned or operated by the day and temporary labor service agency or a third party client, or a contractor or agent of either, or to which a day and temporary labor service agency refers a day or temporary laborer, which is used for the transportation of day or temporary laborers shall have proof of financial responsibility as provided for in Chapter 8 of the Illinois Vehicle Code or as required by Department rules. The driver of the vehicle shall hold a valid license to operate motor vehicles in the correct classification and shall be required to produce the license immediately upon demand by the Department, its inspectors or deputies, or any other person authorized to enforce this Act. The Department shall forward a violation of this subsection to the appropriate law enforcement authorities or regulatory agencies, whichever is applicable.
    (e) No motor vehicle that is owned or operated by the day and temporary labor service agency or a third party client, or a contractor or agent of either, or to which a day and temporary labor service agency refers a day or temporary laborer, which is used for the transportation of day or temporary laborers may be operated if it does not have a seat and a safety belt for each passenger. The Department shall forward a violation of this subsection to the appropriate law enforcement authorities or regulatory agencies, whichever is applicable.

For any other equipment, clothing, accessories, or any other items the day and temporary labor service agency makes available for purchase, the day or temporary laborer shall not be charged more than the actual market value for the item.

820 ILCS 175/30

    (820 ILCS 175/30)
    Sec. 30. Wage Payment and Notice.
    (a) At the time of payment of wages, a day and temporary labor service agency shall provide each day or temporary laborer with a detailed itemized statement, on the day or temporary laborer's paycheck stub or on a form approved by the Department, listing the following:
        (1) the name, address, and telephone number of each
    
third party client at which the day or temporary laborer worked. If this information is provided on the day or temporary laborer's paycheck stub, a code for each third party client may be used so long as the required information for each coded third party client is made available to the day or temporary laborer;
        (2) the number of hours worked by the day or
    
temporary laborer at each third party client each day during the pay period. If the day or temporary laborer is assigned to work at the same work site of the same third party client for multiple days in the same work week, the day and temporary labor service agency may record a summary of hours worked at that third party client's worksite so long as the first and last day of that work week are identified as well. The term "hours worked" has the meaning ascribed to that term in 56 Ill. Adm. Code 210.110 and in accordance with all applicable rules or court interpretations under 56 Ill. Adm. Code 210.110;
        (3) the rate of payment for each hour worked,
    
including any premium rate or bonus;
        (4) the total pay period earnings;
        (5) all deductions made from the day or temporary
    
laborer's compensation made either by the third party client or by the day and temporary labor service agency, and the purpose for which deductions were made, including for the day or temporary laborer's transportation, food, equipment, withheld income tax, withheld social security payments, and every other deduction; and
        (6) any additional information required by rules
    
issued by the Department.
    (a-1) For each day or temporary laborer who is contracted to work a single day, the third party client shall, at the end of the work day, provide such day or temporary laborer with a Work Verification Form, approved by the Department, which shall contain the date, the day or temporary laborer's name, the work location, and the hours worked on that day. Any third party client who violates this subsection (a-1) may be subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $500 for each violation found by the Department. Such civil penalty may increase to $2,500 for a second or subsequent violation. For purposes of this subsection (a-1), each violation of this subsection (a-1) for each day or temporary laborer and for each day the violation continues shall constitute a separate and distinct violation.
    (b) A day and temporary labor service agency shall provide each worker an annual earnings summary within a reasonable time after the preceding calendar year, but in no case later than February 1. A day and temporary labor service agency shall, at the time of each wage payment, give notice to day or temporary laborers of the availability of the annual earnings summary or post such a notice in a conspicuous place in the public reception area.
    (c) At the request of a day or temporary laborer, a day and temporary labor service agency shall hold the daily wages of the day or temporary laborer and make either weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly payments. The wages shall be paid in a single check, or, at the day or temporary laborer's sole option, by direct deposit or other manner approved by the Department, representing the wages earned during the period, either weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly, designated by the day or temporary laborer in accordance with the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act. Vouchers or any other method of payment which is not generally negotiable shall be prohibited as a method of payment of wages. Day and temporary labor service agencies that make daily wage payments shall provide written notification to all day or temporary laborers of the right to request weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly checks. The day and temporary labor service agency may provide this notice by conspicuously posting the notice at the location where the wages are received by the day or temporary laborers.
    (d) No day and temporary labor service agency shall charge any day or temporary laborer for cashing a check issued by the agency for wages earned by a day or temporary laborer who performed work through that agency.
    (e) Day or temporary laborers shall be paid no less than the wage rate stated in the notice as provided in Section 10 of this Act for all the work performed on behalf of the third party client in addition to the work listed in the written description.
    (f) The total amount deducted for meals, equipment, and transportation may not cause a day or temporary laborer's hourly wage to fall below the State or federal minimum wage. However, a day and temporary labor service agency may deduct the actual market value of reusable equipment provided to the day or temporary laborer by the day and temporary labor service agency which the day or temporary laborer fails to return, if the day or temporary laborer provides a written authorization for such deduction at the time the deduction is made.
    (g) A day or temporary laborer who is contracted by a day and temporary labor service agency to work at a third party client's worksite but is not utilized by the third party client shall be paid by the day and temporary labor service agency for a minimum of 4 hours of pay at the agreed upon rate of pay. However, in the event the day and temporary labor service agency contracts the day or temporary laborer to work at another location during the same shift, the day or temporary laborer shall be paid by the day and temporary labor service agency for a minimum of 2 hours of pay at the agreed upon rate of pay.
    (h) A third party client is required to pay wages and related payroll taxes to a licensed day and temporary labor service agency for services performed by the day or temporary laborer for the third party client according to payment terms outlined on invoices, service agreements, or stated terms provided by the day and temporary labor service agency. A third party client who fails to comply with this subsection (h) is subject to the penalties provided in Section 70 of this Act. The Department shall review a complaint filed by a licensed day and temporary labor agency. The Department shall review the payroll and accounting records of the day and temporary labor service agency and the third party client for the period in which the violation of this Act is alleged to have occurred to determine if wages and payroll taxes have been paid to the agency and that the day or temporary laborer has been paid the wages owed him or her.

The public access area shall allow for access to restrooms and water.

820 ILCS 175/40

    (820 ILCS 175/40)
    Sec. 40. Work Restriction. No day and temporary labor service agency shall restrict the right of a day or temporary laborer to accept a permanent position with a third party client to whom the day or temporary laborer has been referred for work or restrict the right of such third party client to offer such employment to a day or temporary laborer. A day and temporary labor service agency may charge a placement fee to a third party client for employing a day or temporary laborer for whom a contract for work was effected by the day and temporary labor service agency not to exceed the equivalent of the total daily commission rate the day and temporary labor service agency would have received over a 60-day period, reduced by the equivalent of the daily commission rate the day and temporary labor service agency would have received for each day the day or temporary laborer has performed work for the day and temporary labor service agency in the preceding 12 months. Days worked at a day and temporary labor service agency in the 12 months preceding the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly shall be included for purposes of calculating the maximum placement fee described in this Section. However, placement of a day or temporary laborer who is contracted by a day and temporary labor service agency to provide skilled labor shall not be subject to any placement fee cap. For purposes of this Section, a day or temporary laborer who performs "skilled labor" shall apply only where the day and temporary labor service agency performs an advanced application process, a screening process, which may include processes such as advanced testing, and a job interview. No fee provided for under this Section may be assessed or collected by the day and temporary labor service agency when the day or temporary laborer is offered permanent work following the suspension or revocation of the day and temporary labor service agency's registration by the Department.

    Sec. 45. Registration; Department of Labor.
    (a) A day and temporary labor service agency which is located, operates or transacts business within this State shall register with the Department of Labor in accordance with rules adopted by the Department for day and temporary labor service agencies and shall be subject to this Act and any rules adopted under this Act. Each day and temporary labor service agency shall provide proof of an employer account number issued by the Department of Employment Security for the payment of unemployment insurance contributions as required under the Unemployment Insurance Act, and proof of valid workers' compensation insurance in effect at the time of registration covering all of its employees. If, at any time, a day and temporary labor service agency's workers' compensation insurance coverage lapses, the agency shall have an affirmative duty to report the lapse of such coverage to the Department and the agency's registration shall be suspended until the agency's workers' compensation insurance is reinstated. The Department may assess each day and temporary labor service agency a non-refundable registration fee not exceeding $1,000 per year per agency and a non-refundable fee not to exceed $250 for each branch office or other location where the agency regularly contracts with day or temporary laborers for services. The fee may be paid by check or money order and the Department may not refuse to accept a check on the basis that it is not a certified check or a cashier's check. The Department may charge an additional fee to be paid by a day and temporary labor service agency if the agency, or any person on the agency's behalf, issues or delivers a check to the Department that is not honored by the financial institution upon which it is drawn. The Department shall also adopt rules for violation hearings and penalties for violations of this Act or the Department's rules in conjunction with the penalties set forth in this Act.
    (b) It is a violation of this Act to operate a day and temporary labor service agency without first registering with the Department in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section. The Department shall create and maintain at regular intervals on its website, accessible to the public: (1) a list of all registered day and temporary labor service agencies in the State whose registration is in good standing; (2) a list of day and temporary labor service agencies in the State whose registration has been suspended, including the reason for the suspension, the date the suspension was initiated, and the date, if known, the suspension is to be lifted; and (3) a list of day and temporary labor service agencies in the State whose registration has been revoked, including the reason for the revocation and the date the registration was revoked. The Department has the authority to assess a penalty against any day and temporary labor service agency that fails to register with the Department of Labor in accordance with this Act or any rules adopted under this Act of $500 for each violation. Each day during which a day and temporary labor service agency operates without registering with the Department shall be a separate and distinct violation of this Act.
    (c) An applicant is not eligible to register to operate a day and temporary labor service agency under this Act if the applicant or any of its officers, directors, partners, or managers or any owner of 25% or greater beneficial interest:
        (1) has been involved, as owner, officer, director,
    
partner, or manager, of any day and temporary labor service agency whose registration has been revoked or has been suspended without being reinstated within the 5 years immediately preceding the filing of the application; or
        (2) is under the age of 18.
    (d) Every agency shall post and keep posted at each location, in a position easily accessible to all employees, notices as supplied and required by the Department containing a copy or summary of the provisions of the Act and a notice which informs the public of a toll-free telephone number for day or temporary laborers and the public to file wage dispute complaints and other alleged violations by day and temporary labor service agencies. Such notices shall be in English or any other language generally understood in the locale of the day and temporary labor service agency.

    Sec. 70. Penalties.
    (a) A day and temporary labor service agency or third party client that violates any of the provisions of this Act or any rule adopted under this Act shall be subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $6,000 for violations found in the first audit by the Department. Following a first audit, a day and temporary labor service agency or third party client shall be subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $2,500 for each repeat violation found by the Department within 3 years. For purposes of this subsection, each violation of this Act for each day or temporary laborer and for each day the violation continues shall constitute a separate and distinct violation. In determining the amount of a penalty, the Director shall consider the appropriateness of the penalty to the day and temporary labor service agency or third party client charged, upon the determination of the gravity of the violations. For any violation determined by the Department to be willful which is within 3 years of an earlier violation, the Department may revoke the registration of the violator, if the violator is a day and temporary labor service agency. The amount of the penalty, when finally determined, may be:
        (1) Recovered in a civil action brought by the
    
Director of Labor in any circuit court. In this litigation, the Director of Labor shall be represented by the Attorney General.
        (2) Ordered by the court, in an action brought by any
    
party for a violation under this Act, to be paid to the Director of Labor.
    (b) The Department shall adopt rules for violation hearings and penalties for violations of this Act or the Department's rules in conjunction with the penalties set forth in this Act.
    Any administrative determination by the Department as to the amount of each penalty shall be final unless reviewed as provided in Section 60 of this Act.

    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 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.
