Most school districts rely on the prevailing wages that the Department of Labor determines for their county. A 2019 amendment to the law means that most school districts no longer have to go through the steps of publishing the prevailing rates in the local newspaper. Instead, a district can simply post a notice to its website with a link to the Department of Labor’s published prevailing wages for the county. The Illinois Department of Labor's website, with links for all counties, can be found HERE.
