In 2017 and 2018, Illinois lawmakers tried twice to close the gender pay gap by prohibiting employers from seeking information about an applicant’s salary history and expanding existing pay equity protections. Both attempts were vetoed by former Governor Rauner. Proving that the third time’s the charm, the state legislature passed the measure on July 31, 2019, and Governor Pritzker recently signed the bill into law, proclaiming that “[h]ere in Illinois, we know that women get the job done.
