As my Payroll 24/7 subscribers found out today, Illinois is increasing its minimum wage to $15.00 per hour by the 2025. But the bill, Senate Bill 1, also increases the penalties for failure to follow
the new requirements. One of blogs that I follow, Wage & Hour Insights has an excellent post on this very issue. I urge you to take a moment to read Bill Pokorny’s blog on the new Illinois minimum wage violations penalties, Stiff New Employer Penalties Included in Illinois $15 Minimum Wage Law. It is an excellent source on the new requirements.
