If you are applying for an IDHR Employer Eligibility Number for the First Time, there will be a $75.00 non-refundable fee. The number expires five (5) years after the date of issue and may be renewed at that time for an additional $75.00 fee. The First-Time Employer Report Form (PC-1) is deemed filed when it is properly completed, signed, and received at the IDHR Chicago office with the $75.00 (non-refundable) registration fee payable to the Illinois Department of Human Rights.
NO BUSINESS OR PERSONAL CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED --- only cashier’s check, certified check, money order, or credit cards will be accepted and processed. All forms accompanied by a business or personal check will be returned unprocessed.
Vendors may also apply for a First-Time IDHR Employer Eligibility Number through the Vendor On-Line Registration link below. IDHR payments can be made by the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.
If your company has multiple locations with the same FEIN as the corporate headquarters, you cannot register locations through the On-Line Registration link. The corporate headquarters for the company must submit via regular mail a First Time (Initial) Employer Report Form (PC-1) for all Illinois locations it wishes to register. No additional fee is required.
