Illinois Labor Department Issues Press Release on Pay Data Reporting

The Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) is again asking for the APA’s help in reaching employers subject to new pay data reporting requirements in the state. The Illinois General Assembly and Governor Pritzker adopted changes earlier this year that require private businesses with 100 or more employees to report certain payroll information to IDOL in 2022. This is part of a change to the Illinois Equal Pay Act of 2003.

By November 3, 2021, businesses are asked to submit three email contacts to the IDOL. This will ensure future communications will reach someone within a business. The IDOL issued a press release with details about the first step in Illinois’ new pay data reporting requirements. The release is on official state letterhead and contains a link that employers can use to submit contact information. The IDOL will send additional instructions via email.
