Illinois Equal Pay Reporting Obligations

Private employers with more than 100 employees in the state of Illinois, who are also required to file an EEO-1 with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, must submit an application to the Illinois Department of Labor (“IDOL”) for an Equal Pay Registration Certification (“EPRC”).

IDOL sent out notices on January 25th to 625 employers, notifying them that they will be required to submit their applications by May 25, 2022.  If a covered business already provided contact information to IDOL but did not receive a notice with an upcoming deadline, then a deadline for that business has not yet been set, and IDOL will send notification regarding a specific due date at some point in the future.
