Noncompete Agreements Under Scrutiny 

At the national, state, and local level, these contractual agreements that limit employees from working for the competition are being scrutinized, restricted, and sometimes prohibited. Employees may no longer be subjected to restrictive non-compete agreements depending on where they work. A national ban is under consideration because of the severe limitations these contracts place on employee mobility and innovation. The extent to which they are limited varies in scope by jurisdiction. Some states have banned them altogether, while a dozen others restrict their enforceability with notice periods, consideration requirements, and wage thresholds for agreement qualifications. Review this article for more information and to verify the state laws in effect.
