New Map of Recent Changes to State Noncompete Laws

Over the past several years, there have been changes to the noncompete laws in 22 states — plus D.C. In some states (such as Illinois, Oregon, and Nevada), there were even multiple changes to the law over the last few years.

To keep track of it all, we’ve prepared the map (above, right) as a visual supplement to our ongoing series covering all of the changes and the summary Changing Trade Secrets | Noncompete Laws page. (The green shading means that the state has had a recent change to its laws.)

We’ve also created a separate map (right) showing legislation from just this year (2021). (The green shading means that the state has had a recent change to its laws; the red means all bills in the state died; and the crosshatch means bills are still pending.)

There’s lots going on — stay tuned.
