Employers with over 100 Illinois employees and required to file an Employee Information Report (EEO-1) with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are also required by the Illinois Equal Pay Act to obtain an Equal Pay Registration Certificate (EPRC), even if no notice was received from the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL). To obtain the certificate, a required employer must complete the IDOL Compliance Statement, provide a wage record report with detailed pay information, and pay a $150.00 fee.

If your business is required to obtain an Equal Pay Registration Certificate and you have not already complied, please do so to avoid penalties. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
