(a) If any person, company, or corporation violates a provision of this Act, the Secretary
may, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois and 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, petition for an order enjoining the violation or for
an order enforcing compliance with this Act. Upon the filing of a verified petition in court, the court may issue a temporary
restraining order, without notice or bond, and may preliminarily and permanently enjoin
the violation. If it is established that the person, company, or corporation 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) If, in the opinion of the Department, a person, company, or corporation violates
a provision of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an order
to cease and desist should not be entered against him, her, or it. 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.
