Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

230 ILCS 5/15.3

    (230 ILCS 5/15.3) (from Ch. 8, par. 37-15.3)
    Sec. 15.3. Any person who makes application for an employment position as a pari-mutuel clerk, parking attendant or security guard with a licensee, where such position would involve work conducted in whole or in part at a wagering facility within this State shall be required to fill out an employment application form prescribed by the Illinois Racing Board. Such application form shall require the applicant to state the following:
    (a) whether the applicant has ever been convicted of a felony offense under the laws of this State, the laws of any other state, or the laws of the United States;
    (b) whether the applicant has ever been convicted of a misdemeanor offense under the laws of this State, the laws of any other state, or the laws of the United States, which offense involved dishonesty, fraud, deception or moral turpitude;
    (c) whether the applicant has ever been excluded by the Board or any other jurisdiction where wagering is conducted;
    (d) whether the applicant has ever committed an act of touting, bookmaking, theft, or fraud, as those terms are defined in Section 15.2 of this Act; and
    (e) any other information that the Board may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of Public Act 84-1468.
    The applicant shall sign the application form and certify that, under the penalties of perjury of this State, the statements set forth in the application form are true and correct.
    The licensee shall, upon its decision to hire the applicant, forward a copy of the application form to the Board. The Board shall review the application form immediately upon receipt.
    The Board's review of the application form shall include an inquiry as to whether the applicant has been accused of any of the acts prohibited under Section 15.2 of this Act and, if the Board does find that the applicant has been so accused, it shall conduct an investigation to determine whether, by a standard of reasonable certainty, the applicant committed the act. If the Board determines that the applicant did commit any of the acts prohibited under that Section, it may exclude the applicant or declare that the applicant is ineligible for employment.
    The Board may declare an applicant ineligible for employment if it finds that the applicant has been previously excluded by the Board. In making such a declaration, the Board shall consider: (a) the reasons the applicant had been previously excluded; (b) the period of time that has elapsed since the applicant was excluded; and (c) how the previous exclusion relates to the applicant's ability to perform the duties of the employment position for which he or she is applying.
    When the Board excludes an applicant or declares an applicant ineligible for employment, it shall immediately notify such applicant and the licensee of its action. A person so excluded or declared ineligible for employment may request a hearing before the Board in accordance with Section 16 of this Act.
    No licensee may employ a pari-mutuel clerk, parking attendant or security guard at a wagering facility after such licensee has been notified that such person has been declared ineligible by the Board.
    Nothing herein shall be construed to limit the Board's exclusionary authority under Section 16.
    Sections 15.2 and 15.3 of this Act shall apply to any person who holds an employment position as a pari-mutuel clerk, parking attendant, or security guard subsequent to July 1, 1987 with a licensee. All such employees employed prior to July 1, 1987 shall be required to file employment applications with the Board, and the information required under subparagraphs (a) through (e) of this Section pertaining to conduct or activities prior to July 1, 1987 shall only be used by the Board in its determination to exclude an applicant or its declaration that an applicant is ineligible for employment based on conduct that occurs after July 1, 1987.
