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.

    (305 ILCS 5/9A-13)
    Sec. 9A-13. Work activity; anti-displacement provisions.
    (a) As used in this Section "work activity" means any workfare, earnfare, pay-after-performance, work-off-the-grant, work experience, or other activity under Section 9A-9 or any other Section of this Code in which a recipient of public assistance performs work for any employer as a condition of receiving the public assistance, and the employer does not pay wages for the work; or as any grant diversion, wage supplementation, or similar program in which the public assistance grant is provided to the employer as a subsidy for the wages of any recipient in its workforce.
    (b) An employer may not utilize a work activity participant if such utilization would result in:
        (1) the displacement or partial displacement of
current employees, including but not limited to a reduction in hours of non-overtime or overtime work, wages, or employment benefits; or
        (2) the filling of a position that would otherwise be
a promotional opportunity for current employees; or
        (3) the filling of a position created by or causing
termination, layoff, a hiring freeze, or a reduction in the workforce; or
        (4) the placement of a participant in any established
unfilled vacancy; or
        (5) the performance of work by a participant if there
is a strike, lockout, or other labor dispute in which the employer is engaged.
    (c) An employer who wishes to utilize work activity participants shall, at least 15 days prior to utilizing such participants, notify the labor organization of the name, work location, and the duties to be performed by the participant.
    (d) The Department of Human Services shall establish a grievance procedure for employees and labor organizations to utilize in the event of any alleged violation of this Section. Notwithstanding the above, a labor organization may utilize the established grievance or arbitration procedure in its collective bargaining agreement to contest violations of this Section.
