50-State Noncompete Chart Updated (May 25, 2024)

New 50-state noncompete chart updated for 2024

We just updated our 50-State Noncompete Chart again.

This update addresses recent developments in Georgia, Maryland, and Washington.

We anticipate possible changes in Colorado (giving the attorney general limited noncompete rule-making authority) and Louisiana (physician limitations ); both bills are on the respective governor’s desk.

Our chart — which was the first of its kind and has been updated regularly since 2010 — has now been updated to reflect this case and is, accordingly, fully up to date through May 25, 2024. We will continue to update the chart as additional significant developments arise across the country.

Additional firm resources:

We hope you find all of these resources useful. More are coming.

And please note that we are grateful for all of the input we’ve received over the years, and welcome any suggestions for improvements that you may be willing to share.
