Illinois Appellate Court Changes the Rules on Non-Competition Agreements: Are Your Agreements in Compliance?

Just when you thought it was safe to enforce those restrictive covenant agreements, the Illinois Appellate Court, 1 st District, throws a change-up. The Illinois Court of Appeals recently ruled that (under certain circumstances) when an employee is hired and signs a restrictive covenant agreement, the employee must be employed for 2 years, in order for the agreement to have sufficient consideration.

EEOC Slammed With the Largest Fee Award Ever Levied Against the Agency

On August 1, 2013, a Northern District of Iowa district court judge awarded CRST Van Expedited with possibly the largest attorneys' fees and costs award ever levied against the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The award, totaling $4,189,296.10 in attorneys' fees and $505,146.04 in costs, came at the end of a grueling six-year battle with the EEOC over the agency's sexual harassment claims.
