Illinois Amends Law Regarding Day and Temporary Labor

Law Includes Revised Notice Requirement, Limitations on Wage Deductions, and More

A new law in Illinois, effective June 1, 2018, amends the state Day and Temporary Labor Services Act. Key provisions are presented below.

Notice Requirement
Whenever a day and temporary labor service agency agrees to send one or more persons to work as day and temporary labor service agency, the agency must provide to each day or temporary laborer (at the time of dispatch) a notice containing certain items. The new law requires such notice to contain the types of equipment, protective clothing, and training that are required for the task.

Providing Transportation for Day or Temporary Laborers
If the day or temporary laborer is provided transportation from the point of application to the worksite by the hiring labor service agency, the day or temporary laborer must also be provided transportation back to the point of application (unless the day or temporary laborer advises or agrees before leaving for the place of employment to obtain alternative transportation after the work shift).

Certain Wage Deductions Prohibited
Day and temporary labor service agencies (or third party clients) are prohibited from charging any day or temporary laborer for the expense of conducting any consumer report (as defined in the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act), any criminal background check, or any drug test.
