After years of dodging an Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) order to pay back wages to its workers, Resurrection Health Care will have to square off with the state attorney general’s office.
In 2004, home health care workers filed IDOL complaints against Resurrection, the second-largest health care system in the Chicago metropolitan area, charging that the chain’s “fee-for-visit” systems consistently failed to pay them for hours worked beyond their normal schedules.
IDOL agreed and ordered Resurrection to bring its pay scales into compliance with state law and pay $381,000 in back wages. Instead, Resurrection spent nearly four years filing appeals, and ultimately refused to comply.
Now the company faces criminal charges for violating the IDOL order.
