State of the Law in Illinois
On Sept. 22, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law HB 690, amending the Illinois Day and Temporary Labor Services Act. The act applies to day laborers and light industrial workers but exempts professional and clerical temporary workers. The amendments will take effect June 1, 2018.
The law will require any staffing firm that provides transportation for workers to the job site to also provide transportation back at the end of the day unless the worker arranges for other return transportation; prohibit staffing firms from charging a temporary worker for consumer reports, criminal background checks, or drug tests; require staffing firms to try to permanently place a temporary worker with the client when the client tells the firm that it is hiring permanent workers to do the same job at the same location; require staffing firms to inform workers about protective clothing, equipment, and training necessary for assignments; and require firms to report the race and gender of assigned workers to the state’s Department of Labor, subject to confidentiality provisions.
