Illinois Benefit Integrity Bill HB3682 – This bill has onerous employer violations and is currently pending with the State.  It contains employer penalties for failing to respond to claims “as required” which includes a double financial penalty:

1.)  Benefits paid will remain on the employer’s account.

2.) A civil penalty amounting to the benefits paid, will be assessed in addition to the charges remaining on the employer’s account.

UTCA urges all employers to be very clear that their programs are in full compliance!
