Tag Archives: 50 state noncompete

Over 50 percent of employees admit stealing company information when they leave for a new job. It’s this “insider threat” that keeps us up at night. To help combat it, we have updated and reissued our training, Protecting Trade Secrets While Working From Home, with improved audio and additional substance.
Over the past several years, there have been changes to the noncompete laws in 24 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 a map as a visual supplement to our Changing Trade Secrets | Noncompete Laws page.
Nevada too has modified its noncompete law. Effective October 1, 2021, among other things, noncompetes cannot be used for hourly workers and employers will be at risk of paying attorney’s fees for violating certain aspects of the law.
