A few weeks ago, we outlined the Top 5 Non-Compete Issues to Watch For In 2011. Among our top five, we noted that non-compete legislation stalled in the Massachusetts Legislature in 2010, and we forecasted that new and modified legislation would be introduced in 2011. Sure enough, a new bill was recently introduced. It contains numerous changes from the prior legislation, and it addresses issues ranging from consideration to garden leave to inevitable disclosure. An excellent summary of the proposed legislation along with a description of the changes from last year's bill is available on Russell Beck's blog at FairCompetitionLaw.com.
