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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(from Ch. 48, par. 39.2)
Demand on an employer for the wages of wage-earner by virtue of a
wage assignment may not be served on the employer unless:
(1) There has been a default of more than 40 days in
payment of the indebtedness secured by the assignment and the default has continued to the date of the demand;
(2) The demand contains a correct statement as to the
amount the wage-earner is in default and the original or a copy of the assignment is exhibited to the employer; and
(3) Not less than 20 days before serving the demand,
notice required under Section 2.2 has been served upon the employee, and an advice copy sent to the employer, by 2 methods: (i) first class mail; and (ii) registered or certified mail.
Service of any demand without complying with this Section has no legal
effect. Proof of certified mail is prima facie evidence of service.
A demand under this Section applies only to wages due at the time of
service of the demand and upon subsequent wages until the total amount due
under the assignment is paid, or, if the wage assignment is revocable under federal law, until the employee revokes it.
