A NEW STATE LAW CRACKS DOWN ON WAGE THEFT IN ILLINOIS. 

 

THE LAW INCREASES THE DAMAGES EMPLOYERS ARE ASSESSED IF THEY HAVEN’T PAID WORKERS FAIRLY FROM TWO TO FIVE PERCENT OF THE AMOUNT OF MONTHLY UNDERPAYMENT SAYS STATE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR ASSISTANT DIRECTOR JASON KELLER.

 

 

KELLER SAYS THE INCREASE WAS NEEDED TO FURTHER DETER BUSINESSES FROM NOT PAYING WORKERS PROPERLY.

 

 

THIS COULD BE NOT PAYING EMPLOYEES MINIMUM WAGE OR NOT COMPENSATING FOR OVERTIME. THE LAW TAKE EFFECT IMMEDIATELY.
