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.

Upon request by the Director of Labor or his or her deputies or agents,
records shall be copied and submitted for evidence at no cost to the
Department of Labor. Every employer upon request shall furnish to the
Director or his or her authorized representative, on demand, a sworn statement
of the accuracy of the records. Any employer who refuses to furnish a sworn
statement of the records is in violation of this Act.
In case of failure of any person to comply with any subpoena lawfully
issued under this Section or on the refusal of any witness to produce
evidence or to testify to any matter regarding which he or she may be
lawfully interrogated, it is the duty of any circuit court, upon
application of the Director or his or her authorized representative, to compel obedience by
proceedings for contempt, as in the case of disobedience of the requirements of
a subpoena issued by such court or a refusal to testify therein. The Director may certify to official acts.
