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.

    (820 ILCS 175/75)
    Sec. 75. Willful violations.
    (a) Whoever willfully violates any of the provisions of this Act or any rule adopted under this Act, or whoever obstructs the Department of Labor, its inspectors or deputies, or any other person authorized to inspect places of employment under this Act shall be liable for penalties up to double the statutory amount.
    (b) Whoever willfully violates any of the provisions of this Act or any rule adopted under this Act which results in an underpayment to a day or temporary laborer shall be liable to the Department for up to 20% of the day and temporary labor service agency's or the third party client's total underpayment and shall also be liable to the employee for punitive damages in the amount of 2% of the amount of any such underpayments for each month following the date of payment during which the underpayments remain unpaid.
    (c) The Director may promulgate rules for the collection of these penalties. The penalty shall be imposed in cases in which a day and temporary labor service agency's or a third party client's conduct is proven by a preponderance of the evidence to be willful. The penalty may be recovered in a civil action brought by the Director of Labor in any circuit court. In any such action, the Director of Labor shall be represented by the Attorney General.
