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.

(from Ch. 48, par. 31.17-3)
Any employer who violates any of the provisions of this
Act or any rule or regulation issued under the Act shall be subject to a
civil penalty of not to exceed $5,000 for each such violation. In
determining the amount of such penalty, the appropriateness of such
penalty to the size of the business of the employer charged and the
gravity of the violation shall be considered. The amount of such
penalty, when finally determined, may be
(1) recovered in a civil action brought by the
Director of Labor in any circuit court, in which litigation the Director of Labor shall be represented by the Attorney General;
(2) ordered by the court, in an action brought for
violation under Section 19, to be paid to the Director of Labor.
Any administrative determination by the Department of Labor of the
amount of each penalty shall be final unless reviewed as provided in
Section 17.1 of this Act.
Civil penalties recovered under this Section shall be paid into the
Child Labor and Day and Temporary Labor Services Enforcement Fund, a special fund
created in the
State treasury. Moneys in the Fund may be used,
appropriation, for exemplary programs, demonstration projects, and other
activities or purposes related to the enforcement of this Act or for the
activities or purposes related to the enforcement of the Day and Temporary
Labor Services Act, or for the activities or purposes related to the enforcement of the Private Employment Agency Act.
