(a) If any person or entity violates the provisions of this Act, the Secretary, in
the name of the People of the State of Illinois, through the Attorney General of the
State of Illinois or the State's Attorney of the county in which the violation is
alleged to have occurred, may petition the circuit court for an order enjoining such
violation or for an order enforcing compliance with this Act. Upon the filing of a verified petition, the court may issue a temporary restraining
order, without bond, and may preliminarily and permanently enjoin such violation. If it is established that such person or other entity has violated or is violating
the injunction, the court may punish the offender for contempt of court. Proceedings under this Section shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, all
other remedies and penalties provided by this Act.
(d) Whenever in the opinion of the Department, any person or entity violates any provision
of this Act, the Department may issue a notice to show cause why an order to cease
and desist should not be entered against that person or entity. The rule shall clearly set forth the grounds relied upon by the Department and shall
provide a period of 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer to the satisfaction
of the Department. Failure to answer to the satisfaction of the Department shall cause an order to
cease and desist to be issued immediately.
