Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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 405/702
(820 ILCS 405/702)
(from Ch. 48, par. 452)
The claims adjudicator shall for each week
with respect to which the claimant claims benefits or waiting period
credit, make a "determination" which shall state whether or not the
claimant is eligible for such benefits or waiting period credit and the
sum to be paid the claimant with respect to such week. The claims
adjudicator shall promptly notify the claimant and such employing unit
as shall, within the time and in the manner prescribed by the Director,
have filed a sufficient allegation that the claimant is ineligible to
receive benefits or waiting period credit for said week, of his
"determination" and the reasons therefor. The Director may, by rule adopted with the advice and aid of the Employment Security Advisory Board, require that an employing unit with 25 or more individuals in its employ during a calendar year, or an entity representing 5 or more employing units during a calendar year, file an allegation of ineligibility electronically in a manner prescribed by the Director for the one year period commencing on July 1 of the immediately succeeding calendar year and ending on June 30 of the second succeeding calendar year. In making his
"determination," the claims adjudicator shall give consideration to the
information, if any, contained in the employing unit's allegation,
whether or not the allegation is sufficient. The claims adjudicator
shall deem an employing unit's allegation sufficient only if it contains
a reason or reasons therefor (other than general conclusions of
law, and statements such as "not actively seeking work" or "not available
for work" shall be deemed, for this purpose, to be conclusions of law).
If the claims adjudicator deems an allegation insufficient, he shall make a
decision accordingly, and shall notify the employing unit of such
decision and the reasons therefor. Such decision may be appealed by the
employing unit to a Referee within the time limits prescribed by Section
800 for appeal from a "determination". Any such appeal, and any appeal
from the Referee's decision thereon, shall be governed by the applicable
provisions of Sections 801, 803, 804 and 805.
