(a) It is a violation of this Act for a third party client to enter into a contract
for the employment of day or temporary laborers with any day and temporary labor service
agency not registered under Section 45 of this Act. A third party client has a duty to verify a day and temporary labor service agency's
status with the Department before entering into a contract with such an agency, and
on March 1 and September 1 of each year. A day and temporary labor service agency shall be required to provide each of its
third party clients with proof of valid registration issued by the Department at the
time of entering into a contract. A day and temporary labor service agency shall be required to notify, both by telephone
and in writing, each day or temporary laborer it employs and each third party client
with whom it has a contract within 24 hours of any denial, suspension, or revocation
of its registration by the Department. All contracts between any day and temporary labor service agency and any third party
client shall be considered null and void from the date any such denial, suspension,
or revocation of registration becomes effective and until such time as the day and
temporary labor service agency becomes registered and considered in good standing
by the Department as provided in Section 50 and Section 55. Upon request, the Department shall provide to a third party client a list of entities
registered as day and temporary labor service agencies. The Department shall provide on the Internet a list of entities registered as day
and temporary labor service agencies. A third party client may rely on information provided by the Department or maintained
on the Department's website pursuant to Section 45 of this Act and shall be held harmless
if such information maintained or provided by the Department was inaccurate. Any third party client that violates this provision of the Act is subject to a civil
penalty not to exceed $500. Each day during which a third party client contracts with a day and temporary labor
service agency not registered under Section 45 of this Act shall constitute a separate
and distinct offense.
(b) If a third party client leases or contracts with a day and temporary service agency
for the services of a day or temporary laborer, the third party client shall share
all legal responsibility and liability for the payment of wages under the Illinois
Wage Payment and Collection Act and the Minimum Wage Law.
