Illinois Supreme Court Resolves Split in Appellate Courts and Rejects Use of Rigid Tests to Evaluate Restrictive Covenants

Ogletree Deakins • December 06, 2011
On December 1, 2011, the Illinois Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion in Reliable Fire Equipment Company v. Arredondo, No. 111871, 2011 WL 6000743 (Dec. 1, 2011) holding that courts cannot use rigid, structured tests to determine whether restrictive covenants are enforceable. Specifically, the Illinois Supreme Court held that while courts must continue to evaluate whether an employer has a legitimate business interest that justifies the use of a restrictive covenant, courts should not use isolated, inflexible factors in making this assessment.
