Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

20 ILCS 605/605-865

    (20 ILCS 605/605-865)
    Sec. 605-865. Family-friendly workplace initiative. The Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, with the advice of members of the business community, may establish a family-friendly workplace initiative. The Department may develop a program to annually collect information regarding the State's private eligible employers with 50 or fewer employees and private eligible employers with 51 or more employees in the State providing the most family-friendly benefits to their employees. The same program may be established for public employers. The criteria for determining eligible employers includes, but is not limited to, the following:
        (1) consideration of the dependent care scholarship
or discounts given by the employer;
        (2) flexible work hours and schedules;
        (3) time off for caring for sick or injured
        (4) the provision of onsite or nearby dependent care;
        (5) dependent care referral services; and
        (6) in-kind contributions to community dependent care
    Those employers chosen by the Department 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.
