Noncompete Clauses Increasingly Pop Up in Array of Jobs

Noncompete Clauses Increasingly Pop Up in Array of Jobs

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 noncompetition 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.
