New Illinois Minimum Wages and Non-Compliance Penalties
Mar 14, 2019
On February 19, 2019, Governor Pritzker signed into law Public Act 101‐0001, which will raise the statewide minimum wage incrementally, starting January 1, 2020. These new amendments to the Minimum Wage Law (“IMWL”) also severely increase penalties on employers who acquire minimum wage violations and who fail to keep the required records specified by the Act. The new penalties are effective immediately.
