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.

820 ILCS 105/5

    (820 ILCS 105/5) (from Ch. 48, par. 1005)
    Sec. 5. The Director may provide by regulation for the employment in any occupation of individuals whose earning capacity is impaired by age, or physical or mental deficiency or injury at such wages lower than the minimum wage rate provided in Section 4, subsection (a), as he may find appropriate to prevent curtailment of opportunities for employment, to avoid undue hardship, and to safeguard the minimum wage rate of this Act, except that no person who maintains a production level within the limits required of other employees may be paid at less than the minimum wage. No employee shall be employed at wages fixed pursuant to this Section except under a special license issued under applicable regulations of the Director.
