  • August 9, 2018
  • On July 31, 2018, the Massachusetts Legislature passed long-debated legislation aimed at reforming the law surrounding non-competition agreements. Non-competition agreements are commonly used to restrict competition following the ending of the employment relationship. If signed by the Governor in its present form, the law would go into effect October 1, 2018 and significantly alter the landscape related to noncompete agreements for employers and employees in Massachusetts.
