 1        AN ACT concerning employment.

 2        Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The  Employee  Benefit  Contribution  Act is
 5    amended by changing Section 2 as follows:

 6        (820 ILCS 160/2) (from Ch. 48, par. 39x)
 7        Sec. 2.  Any employer who has agreed to make payments  to
 8    an  employee health insurance plan shall notify its employees
 9    of any failure to  make  such  payments  where  such  failure
10    shall may  result  in the total loss of insurance coverage so
11    as to provide  its  employees  a  reasonable  opportunity  to
12    replace  such  coverage  at  the  time  the  employee  health
13    insurance  plan terminates. The employer must provide written
14    notification directly  to  each  of  its  employees  who  are
15    covered  under  the plan. Notification may be made by posting
16    in a conspicuous place  in  the  place  of  employment.   Any
17    employer  who fails to provide timely notice of a prospective
18    termination of a health insurance plan, which failure results
19    in  the  deprivation  of  the  opportunity  to  replace  such
20    coverage and which further results in damages to one or  more
21    employees  arising from the loss of coverage, shall be guilty
22    of a Class B misdemeanor.  The Department  of  Insurance  has
23    authority  to inspect places of employment for the purpose of
24    assuring the  employer's  compliance  with  the  notification
25    requirements of this Section.
