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.

    Sec. 2. Protected benefits. Any employee of a unit of local government who is a member of any reserve component of the United States Armed Services, including the Illinois National Guard, and who is mobilized to active military duty on or after August 1, 1990 as a result of an order of the President of the United States, shall for each pay period beginning on or after August 1, 1990 continue to receive the same regular compensation that he receives or was receiving as an employee of the unit of local government by which he is employed at the time he is or was so mobilized to active military duty, plus any health insurance and other benefits he is or was receiving or accruing at that time, minus the amount of his base pay for military service, for the duration of his active military service.
    In the event any provision of a collective bargaining agreement or any policy of the employing unit of local government covering an employee so ordered to active duty is more generous than the provisions contained in this Section, that collective bargaining agreement or unit of local government policy shall be controlling.
    In the event that 20 percent or more of the employees of a unit of local government are mobilized to active military duty on or after August 1, 1990, as a result of an order of the President of the United States, the provisions of this Act shall not apply to individuals employed by such units of local government.
