Illinois Likely To Become Next State To Pass Pay Transparency Law
A proposed amendment to Illinois’ Equal Pay Act, H.B. 3129, is moving quickly through the state’s legislature. If passed, this law would require employers with 15 or more employees to include a pay range and description of benefits in any job posting—similar to other pay-
transparency laws that we have seen in a few other states.
If passed, this law would further require employers to inform their current employees of promotion opportunities when the employer advertises for an open position either internally or externally, taking pay-transparency laws to another beneficial level to employees within the state.
H.B. 3129 has made its way through the state legislature and has headed to Illinois Governor Pritzker for signature. If signed into law by the Governor, the new law would take effect January 1, 2025.
Stay tuned for more updates on this and other pending pay-transparency legislation.
