Just before midnight on July 31, 2018, the Massachusetts Legislature passed a bill regulating the use of non-compete agreements in the Commonwealth. This development is a long time coming, as the Legislature had been attempting for nearly a decade to create a non-compete law.

In an article posted on our website on August 1, 2018, Erik Winton (Boston) and Colin Thakkar (Jacksonville) examine the details of the non-compete act, which is set to take effect on October 1, 2018. For guidance on how to comply with the new law, affected employers are encouraged to contact a non-compete attorney in Jackson Lewis’s Boston Office, including Erik Winton, Stephen Paterniti, and Sarah Herlihy.
