Illinois attorney general sues Jimmy John’s over noncompetes

Complaint cites company’s use of restrictive non-compete agreements

Illinois attorney general Lisa Madigan sued Jimmy John’s Enterprises LLC on Wednesday, citing the sandwich chain’s use of non-compete clauses in contracts that restrict where its workers can get jobs after they leave the company.

The agreements prevent Jimmy John’s workers from getting a job from any employer that gets at least 10 percent of its revenue from sandwiches and are located within two miles of any Jimmy John’s location in the U.S.
