We want to remove as few posts as possible while ensuring focused and constructive discussions occur. Moderators reserve the right to remove posts and/or submissions that​ are not “on topic” or do not address some aspect of that purpose.

Illinois workNet is committed to ensuring the privacy of our users. Forums and other information-sharing tools require you to create an Illinois workNet account; however, personal information, including your email address, will not be displayed on the site or shared with others.​​
