IDOL's Hearing Rules
CHICAGO – Governor Pat Quinn today signed a law to protect the increasing number of workers across Illinois who receive their compensation through a payroll card. The measure, drafted by Attorney General Lisa Madigan, provides important protections for employees by limiting fees that can be imposed on payroll cards. Today’s action is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to ensure all Illinois workers are treated fairly and receive the compensation they deserve.
