Outlining Noncompete Reform in New England

8.1.19

Noncompete reform continues to crop up in New England; three states – Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island – now prohibit employers from entering noncompetition agreements with low-wage employees, though the definition of “low wage” varies by state. In an article published in both Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly, Kevin Burns summarizes each state’s law, how they vary from each other – and from similar laws around the country – and what employers need to do now. In his conclusion, Kevin writes, “Employers that use noncompetition agreements with low-wage employees in particular need to be aware of these changes as the prohibition of these types of agreements has been a common area of reform in many states and likely will be in the future.”
