Illinois Businesses - Be Aware of the New Illinois Freedom to Work Act

The Illinois Freedom to Work Act went into effect on January 1, 2017 (820 ILCS 90). The Act is said to have been passed in response to Jimmy John's requiring employees to sign non-compete agreements that restricted the employees from being employed at businesses located with 2 or 3 miles of Jimmy John's locations if the business obtained more than 10% of their revenue from the sale of menu items similar to the Jimmy John's menu items.
