Thank you for your patience as we waited for any new updates on HB4340. HB4340, as passed by the General Assembly will require a narrow group of “massage establishments” to post the Human Trafficking Hot-Line Poster in their business. This legislation allows for local law enforcement to issue tickets for failure to post the notice.
HB4340 was passed late May with the following amendments:
House Floor Amendment No.2:
“Massage establishments” does not include a business owned by a sole licensed massage therapist or a cosmetology or esthetics salon registered under the Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Act of 1985.
Senate Floor Amendment No.1:
“Massage establishments” does not include an establishment at which persons licensed under the Medical Practice Act of 1987, the Illinois Physical Therapy Act, or the Naprapathic Practice Act engage in practice under one of those Acts.
HB4340 will be sent to the Governor for review with the above amendments.
Any updates or changes to the bill will be communicated to our members as soon as possible.
