Bilingual Needs/Bilingual Pay Report

The Personnel Code, at 20 ILCS 415/9(6), requires that the Department of Central Management Services (CMS) conduct an annual assessment of all agencies regarding their need for employees with bilingual capabilities to serve significant numbers of non­ English speaking or culturally distinct persons. Furthermore, to increase the diversity of the state's workforce, the State Hispanic Employment Plan, enacted in 2006, calls for each state agency to include in its annual report its activities in implementing the State Hispanic Employment Plan and the bilingual employment plan.
