Massachusetts Noncompete Bill Reported Out of Committee

It is official:  The Massachusetts noncompete bill (of which I am the principal draftsperson) has been reported out of committee.  A copy is available here or by clicking on the picture to the right.

Upon a quick read, it appears that garden leave clauses have been removed.  Otherwise, the bill remains largely the same as the September version of the so-called “compromise bill.”  More to follow after a more thorough review.

Other changes are likely, particularly as we have received some outstanding input from many different people since the bill was initially submitted to committee.

For more information, please contact either of the two state representatives who have been leading the charge – Lori Ehrilich and Will Brownsberger – or me.  (Click on our names for our information.)
