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.

30 ILCS 570/6

    (30 ILCS 570/6) (from Ch. 48, par. 2206)
    Sec. 6. Penalties. Any person or entity that violates the provisions of this Act is subject to a civil penalty in an amount not to exceed $1,000 for each violation found in the first investigation by the Department, not to exceed $5,000 for each violation found in the second investigation by the Department, and not to exceed $15,000 for a third or subsequent violation found in any subsequent investigation by the Department. Each violation of this Act for each worker and for each day the violation continues constitutes a separate and distinct violation. In determining the amount of the penalty, the Department shall consider the appropriateness of the penalty to the person or entity charged, upon determination of the gravity of the violations. The collection of these penalties shall be enforced in a civil action brought by the Attorney General on behalf of the Department.
