The Amended Illinois Freedom to Work Act: What this means for your non-compete

On January 1, 2022, Senate Bill 0672 went into effect, drastically amending the Illinois Freedom to Work Act. The Bill codified restrictive covenants that, prior to the Bill, had solely been addressed by judicial decisions.
