The noncompetes bill frenzy continues: 33 states with 84 noncompete bills so far, and 5 more in Congress, 11 dead, 7 passed, 2 about to.
The ramp-up to legislatively limit noncompetes continues: there have been 25 states with 74 noncompete bills so far this year, and 4 more are pending in Congress; 2 dead, 1 passed, 1 about to.
Illinois, Iowa, and Kentucky each created some exemptions for nurses or other healthcare workers. If you’re keeping track, that’s four states that have already updated their laws effective this year: Colorado (twice), Illinois (twice), Iowa, and Kentucky. (And, of course, D.C. is still in the works.)
Three and half months into 2021, and there have been 59 bills pending in 23 states (not counting 2 federal bills, a new DC law, or any proposed bills that are circulating, but have not yet been filed). Four bills have already died — each in a state that had only one pending bill — leaving the current tally at 55 bills pending in 19 states. Today’s post covers the two bills pending in Louisiana.
