Illinois business searching for an online business hour can be a hassle.
According to the Illinois Business Searching for an Online Business Hours bill, the state is allowed to charge for any online business related activity such as the hours it takes to set up and run the business.
However, the bill does not specify what that activity is or how long it takes.
The bill also does not define what a “business day” is.
It also does say that an online job search can be used to identify “employees, contractors, or independent contractors”.
The Illinois Business search for an hours bill is being debated in the state House and Senate.
A spokesperson for House Speaker Mike Madigan told RTE that the bill would be introduced to the full House and that the House will consider it at its next regular meeting on Wednesday.
“It is important to note that this bill is not intended to be used by employers to penalise workers,” said Madigan in a statement.
“It does, however, recognize the need to ensure that businesses are able to offer online business options to their employees and customers, and to ensure access to online job opportunities for Illinoisans.”
