The Rise of Non-Competition Clauses in Employment Contracts

The Rise of Non-Competition Clauses in Employment Contracts

New York Times – Article on the rise of non-competition clauses in employment contracts

We regularly post updates related to changes and trends in national and state non-competition laws.  Steve Greenhouse of the New York Times recently wrote an article discussing an increase in the number of non-competition clauses in employment agreements (“Noncompete Clauses Increasingly Pop Up in Array of Jobs”, June 10, 2014).  The article discusses that the reason for this increase in use of non-competes is that industries that have not typically relied on non-competition agreements for protection are now using them. It then further discusses the patchwork of non-competition clause treatment across the United States. It’s an interesting read and offers a well-balanced view of non-competes and how they affect employees, employers, and local economies.
