The law signed by Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker on August 4 and that became effective immediately “requires that the pay for temporary workers assigned to a third-party client for more than 90 days be equal to that of their directly hired employee counterparts,” the publication notes.
New Jersey passed similar legislation earlier this year. “Interestingly, the third-party client also must provide, upon request, ‘all necessary information’ concerning jobs, pay, and benefits of the comparable employees to allow the temporary worker agency to comply with the law,” the publication notes. “Failure to do so by the third-party client constitutes a violation subject to penalties under the law.”
