Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Commerce and Community Affairs Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Allows the Department of Commerce and Community Affairs to establish, with the advice of members of the business community, a family-friendly workplace initiative. States that the Department may develop a program to annually collect information regarding the State's private or public eligible employers with 50 or fewer employees and private or public eligible employers with 51 or more employees in the State providing the most family-friendly benefits to their employees. Provides that the employers may be recognized with annual "family-friendly workplace" awards and a Statewide information and advertising campaign publicizing the employers' awards, their contributions to family-friendly child care, and the methods they used to improve the dependent care experiences of their employees' families. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Community College System)
 Under the State Mandates Act, a "State Mandate" means any State-initiated statutory or executive action that requires a unit of local government to establish, expand, or modify its activities in such a way as to necessitate additional expenditures from local revenues. Each community college is considered a unit of local government. This bill requires DCCA to collect family workplace information from state employers. Community colleges would be required to submit this information to DCCA. The only costs would be from information collection, and this is estimated to be minimal. There is no financial cost to the ICCB.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois State Board of Education)
 SB 374 will not have a fiscal impact on ISBE. To the extent that school districts are employers, this legislation would have a negligible fiscal impact.

 Fiscal Note (Dept of Commerce and Community Affairs)
 Senate Bill 374 is estimated to have a fiscal impact on the department, however a reliable estimate of that impact cannot be made at this time without additional information on the intended programmatic design and scope of the program.
