(730 ILCS 5/3-2-13)
Possession of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card.
The Department of Corrections shall not make possession of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card a condition of continued employment as a Department employee authorized to possess firearms if the employee's Firearm Owner's Identification Card is revoked or seized because the employee has been a patient of a mental health facility and the employee has not been determined to pose a clear and present danger to himself, herself, or others as determined by a physician, clinical psychologist, or qualified examiner. Nothing is this Section shall otherwise impair the Department's ability to determine an employee's fitness for duty. A collective bargaining agreement already in effect on this issue on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly cannot be modified, but on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly, the Department cannot require a Firearm Owner's Identification Card as a condition of continued employment in a collective bargaining agreement. The Department shall document if and why an employee has been determined to pose a clear and present danger. In this Section, "mental health facility" and "qualified examiner" have the meanings provided in the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code.
