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 275/30

    (820 ILCS 275/30)
    Sec. 30. Action for workplace protection restraining order.
    (a) An action for a workplace protection restraining order may be commenced independently by filing a petition for a workplace protection restraining order in any civil court, unless specific courts are designated by local rule or order.
    (b) The clerk of the circuit court shall charge fees in accordance with the Clerks of Courts Act.
    (c) Notwithstanding the requirements of Section 20 of this Act, if the specific address or geographic location of the workplace is not currently known to the respondent due to the efforts by the employer or the employee to minimize the threat of unlawful violence to the employee, and the petition provides that disclosure of the employee's current workplace would risk violence, the workplace address may be omitted from all documents filed with the court. If the petitioner does not disclose the workplace address, the petitioner shall designate an alternative address at which the respondent may serve notice of any motions.
    (d) Any proceeding to obtain, modify, reopen, or appeal a workplace protection restraining order shall be governed by the rules of civil procedure of this State. The standard of proof in such a proceeding is proof by a preponderance of the evidence. The Code of Civil Procedure and Supreme Court and local rules applicable to civil proceedings apply.
    (e) There is no right to trial by jury in any proceeding to obtain, modify, vacate, or extend any workplace protection restraining order under this Act.
