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.
