    Sec. 2-8.1. Suspension and revocation of permit to operate.
    (a) The Department shall have the power to suspend or revoke an owner's permit for any good cause under the meaning and purpose of this Act. If a person whose permit has been suspended or revoked, or whose application for a permit has been denied, believes that the violation or condition justifying suspension, revocation, or denial of the permit does not exist, the person may apply to the Department for reconsideration through a hearing within 10 business days after the Department's action. A hearing shall be scheduled, unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties, within 48 hours after the request for hearing.
    (b) Service of notice of a hearing, or any other document related to investigation or enforcement of violations, shall be made by certified mail, by regular mail if service by certified mail cannot be completed, or by email to an email address previously designated by the party to be used for such purpose, to the address shown on the application for permit or to any other address on file with the Department or reasonably believed to be the current address of the permit holder.
    (c) Such written notice of a hearing shall specify the time, date, and location of the hearing and the reasons for the action proposed by the Department.
    (d) At the hearing, the Department shall have the burden of establishing good cause for its action. Good cause exists if the Department establishes that the permit holder has failed to comply with the requirements of a permit under this Act and its rules.
    (e) All hearings held under this Section shall comply with Article 10 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act and the Department's rules of procedure in administrative hearings, except that formal discovery, such as production requests, requests to admit, and depositions shall not be allowed. The parties shall exchange documents and witness lists prior to hearing and may request third party subpoenas to be issued.
    (f) The final determination by the Department of Labor shall be rendered within 5 business days after the conclusion of the hearing.
    (g) Final determinations made under this Section are subject to the Administrative Review Law.
