    Default Can a State Employer Fail to Pay Backpay to Employees

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Illinois.

    Illinois hasn't passed a budget in three years. We are still waiting for our backpay for last 2.5 years as well as our raises. don't they have to pay us that money?

    are you actually saying you havent' been paid in 2 1/2 years at all? Or is this backpay for a special reason?

    I agree with Mr K -- not enough info to even begin to help

    Quote Quoting Proposal could give state workers owed backpay
    It's been five years since state workers have seen a raise, but a proposal could change that. It would allow the state to spend more than $63 million to return back pay.

    State workers were denied those raises in 2011. In 2010, Governor Pat Quinn claimed the state did not have the revenue to return the dollars. That's even though the raises were promised and put into contracts.

    The Supreme Court ruled early this week the state is off the hook for returning that pay, only if there's no appropriation. In 2008, a deal was made which called for more than 15% in raises to be paid over four years.

    About 24,000 public service workers in state government are owed an average of $2,500 each, dating back to 2011.
    According to that article the matter has been heard and the issue has been addressed by the State Supreme Court -- and the state does not have to pay unless and until there is an appropriation.
