Jimmy John's -- the chain sandwich company based in Illinois -- says it's fixed the problem with stores using non-compete agreements for employees.

But the Illinois Attorney General's office says franchise locations are still using them.

Under the agreements, employees couldn't work for another sub shop while working at Jimmy John's or for two years afterwards.

AG spokeswoman Eileen Boyce says stores are still asking employees to sign the agreements.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is suing the Jimmy John's sandwich chain accusing it of improperly forcing low-level employees to sign agreements preventing them from seeking jobs with competitors.

Madigan announced the lawsuit against Champaign-based Jimmy John's in a news release Wednesday. She called the non-compete agreements unfair.
