Prevailing Wage Act

The District complies with provisions of the Illinois Prevailing Wage Act and changes made to the Act in Public Act 100-1177.  Effective June 1, 2019, the Tinley Park-Park District is no longer required to approve an annual prevailing wage ordinance determining the prevailing wage rate that has been ascertained by the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL).  Instead, the prevailing wage schedule published by IDOL’s website will automatically set the applicable wage rates for each locality.

The current prevailing wage rates may be obtained from the Illinois Department of Labor’s website at the link provided below.  For rates applicable to the Tinley Park-Park District, please choose the schedule for Cook County.
