Employment Law Council

The purpose of the Employment Law Council is to effectively represent Illinois business on employment law topics such as workers compensation, unemployment insurance, and other management/employee issues, to pursue public policy actions that advance the interests and viewpoints of employers, and to assist in creating a political climate conducive to improving Illinois’ ability to create and retain jobs.

This Council strives to relieve burdens imposed by state government in areas such as workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance, employment training and workplace mandates. More than 100 Illinois employers were directly involved in policy making and strategy for the Council’s activities during the past two years.
