New Illinois Law Prohibits Charging Women More than Men for the Same Services

  • By: Alan E. Sohn
  • Published: October 23, 2017

Under a new Illinois law, certain service providers will no longer be able to charge women more for the same services that men receive. The legislation is intended to increase transparency in pricing and expose gender – based price discrimination. The law requires hair salons, barbers, dry cleaners and tailors to provide customers with a price list for services upon request. The law will take effect on January 1, 2018.
