Creates the Workplace Transparency Act. Provides that an employer shall not enter into a contract or agreement with an employee or applicant if that contract or agreement contains a nondisclosure or nondisparagement clause or forced arbitration clause that covers workplace harassment or discrimination, including sexual harassment or retaliation for reporting, resisting, opposing, or assisting in the investigation of workplace harassment or discrimination. Makes corresponding changes in the Uniform Arbitration Act, the Illinois Human Rights Act, and the Illinois Freedom to Work Act. Changes the definition of "sexual harassment" in the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act and the Lobbyist Registration Act. Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Provides that no court shall enter an order or judgment that has the purpose or effect of concealing a public hazard or any information concerning a public hazard, nor shall the court enter an order or judgment that has the purpose or effect of concealing any information that may be useful to members of the public in protecting themselves from injury that may result from the public hazard. Further amends the Illinois Human Rights Act. Requires the Department of Human Rights to adopt a model sexual harassment prevention training program and provides that all employers shall use the model or establish a training program that equals or exceeds the minimum standards provided by the model. Makes other changes concerning: definitions; procedures following an employer's failure to post required notices; and employer disclosure requirements. Amends the Victims' Economic Security and Safety Act. Makes the Act applicable in instances of sexual harassment. Provides that a civil action may be brought to enforce the Act without first filing an administrative complaint. Makes other changes concerning definitions and documentation. Effective immediately.
