Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Human Rights Act. Provides that it is a civil rights violation for any employer, employment agency, or labor organization to inquire into or use the fact of an arrest, the fact of a criminal charge, or any expunged or sealed criminal history record information (instead of only the fact of an arrest or expunged or any sealed criminal history record information) of a person, as a basis to refuse to hire, for an adverse employment action, to refuse to grant tenure, or to affect the terms, privileges or conditions of employment, but that the prohibition against the use of the fact of an arrest or the fact of a criminal charge (instead of only the fact of an arrest) does not prohibit an employer, employment agency, or labor organization from obtaining or using other information which indicates that a person actually engaged in the conduct for which he or she was arrested or for which he or she was the subject of a criminal charge.
