New Year, New Controversial Employer Obligations under the Public Labor Acts
Jan 10, 2020
Illinois has enacted new legislation in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Janus decision which found public sector “fair share” contract provisions to be unconstitutional. Public Act 101‐0620 imposes several statutory obligations on public and educational employers, particularly with respect to dues deductions, information sharing and a labor organization’s access to its members. While fair share provisions remain impermissible, the Act creates significant new rights for unions.
