Reminder: Illinois Equal Pay Certification Required by March 2024

18 Mar


We wanted to remind employers that they must submit demographic and wage data to the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) if they have at least 100 or more employees, making them a covered employer under the Act and subject to its requirements.

The total number of employees is the total number of Illinois employees your business employed on December 31 of the calendar year immediately preceding your reporting deadline.

You must also file the Annual Employer Information Report EEO-1.

The application must be filed no later than March 24, 2024. If the report is not filed or is inaccurate, IDOL will send you a notice indicating that you have 30 calendar days to comply (to file or rectify the application), at the risk of being fined according to your business size You can read further about the civil penalties by scrolling down to Section 30(c) in the existing law here.

For additional guidance, please consult the IDOL FAQs here.
