Illinois Layoff: What you need to know

The Illinois Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (IL WARN) requires employers to give 60 days' notice to employees, employee unions, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity's Bureau of Workforce Development of a mass layoff, relocation, or employment loss (820 ILCS 65/1 et seq.).

In addition to administering the state law, Illinois agencies assist in enforcing the requirements of the federal law.
