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.

    (225 ILCS 46/50)
    Sec. 50. Health care employer files. The health care employer shall retain on file for a period of 5 years records of criminal records requests for all employees. The health care employer shall retain a copy of the disclosure and authorization forms, a copy of the livescan request form, all notifications resulting from the fingerprint-based criminal history records check and waiver, if appropriate, for the duration of the individual's employment. The files shall be subject to inspection by the agency responsible for inspecting, licensing, or certifying the health care employer. A fine of up to $500 may be imposed by the appropriate agency for failure to maintain these records. The Department of Public Health must keep an electronic record of criminal history background checks for an individual for as long as the individual remains active on the Health Care Worker Registry.
