NEW ILLINOIS LAW WILL VOID COVENANTS NOT TO COMPETE FOR HOURLY EMPLOYEES EARNING LESS THAN $13 PER HOUR

Beginning January 1, 2017, a new Illinois law will prohibit employers from requiring employees earning less than $13 per hour to sign a covenant not to compete. The new law, the "Illinois Freedom to Work Act" provides that any such agreement is void and illegal. Employees of governmental or quasi-governmental employers are not covered by this new law.

Employers with hourly employees covered by this new law should carefully review all of their existing employment agreements to assure compliance.
