With its recently passed Act Relative to Noncompete Agreements for Low-Wage Employees, New Hampshire has joined a growing list of states (including Maryland and Maine) that have enacted laws barring employers from enforcing non-competition agreements against low-wage workers. The New Hampshire law prohibits employers from enforcing agreements against employees earning less than 200% of the federal minimum wage ($14.50/hour as of 2019) which limit their ability to work for another employer for (1) a specific period of time (2) in a specific geographic area, or (3) in a specific industry. The prohibition takes effect September 8, 2019.
