Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative

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.

disciplines, refuses to hire or otherwise penalizes an obligor as
prohibited by Section 40, or otherwise fails to comply with any

Only where the employer has incurred sums due under this Section and is unable to pay such amounts may personal liability attach to a responsible officer or employee who has willfully failed to withhold and pay over income as required under the income withholding notice. The personal liability imposed by this subsection shall survive the dissolution of a partnership, limited liability company, or corporation. For the purposes of this subsection, "officer or employee of any payor" includes a partner of a partnership, a manager or member of a limited liability corporation, and a member of a registered limited liability partnership.
