Section 300.1160  Notice and Appeal of Department's Order

 

a)         Following the entry of a final order, the Department will send written notice of its order to the parties by regular U.S. mail, setting forth the amount of the judgment, if any, including all damages, administrative fees and penalties, as well as the parties' appeal rights. Service shall be presumed to be accomplished upon mailing.

 

b)         A party may file a motion to reconsider with the Department within 15 days after the Department's order and the motion will only be considered by the Department for procedural issues. A motion to reconsider should be sent to the Department's Chicago office, 160 N. LaSalle, C-1300, Chicago IL 60601. The Department will issue a written decision on any motions to reconsider and serve that decision on all parties via regular US mail. No further appeal process or administrative remedies may be sought at the Department level.

 

c)         Any party may appeal the Department's order or dismissal to the circuit court within 35 days in accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Review Law [735 ILCS 5/Art. III]. If a motion to reconsider is filed with the Department, the time period to appeal to the circuit court shall begin when the Department issues its written decision on any motion to reconsider via regular US mail.

 

d)         If a party seeks judicial review of a Department order or dismissal, that party will pay the actual cost to the Department of preparing the administrative record and filing the record in court.  Payment shall be by certified check made payable to the Illinois Department of Labor.

 

e)         Actions for judicial review shall be filed where the hearing proceeding took place, which is either the circuit court of Cook County or Sangamon County.

 

f)         The order of the Department will become final and enforceable if no appeals are filed within 35 days after the Department's order or after all appeals are exhausted.
