(225 ILCS 410/4-9)
(from Ch. 111, par. 1704-9)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
Practice without a license or after suspension or revocation
(a) If any person violates the provisions of this Act, the Secretary
may, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois, through the
Attorney General of the State of Illinois, petition, for an order
enjoining such violation or for an order enforcing compliance with
this Act. Upon the filing of a verified petition in such court, the
court may issue a temporary restraining order, without notice or
bond, and may preliminarily and permanently enjoin such violation,
and if it is established that such person 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.
(b) If any person shall practice as a barber, cosmetologist, nail
technician, hair braider, or esthetician, or teacher thereof or cosmetology clinic teacher or hold himself or herself out as such
without being licensed under the provisions of this Act, any
licensee, any interested party, or any person injured thereby
may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for relief as provided in subsection
(a) of this Section.
(c) Whenever in the opinion of the Department any person, firm, corporation, or other legal entity has violated
any provision of Section 1-7 or 3D-5 of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show
cause why an order to cease and desist should not be entered against
that person, firm, corporation, or legal 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.
