Our Fox colleagues at the New Jersey Human Resources blog have reported that there is a bill currently pending before the legislature that would drastically change the enforcement of non-competition agreements.  We think this may be of interest to our regular readers as well, so we encourage you to check out Ian Meklinsky‘s April 12th blog post.

 

In short, the bill if passed as drafted, would make it nearly impossible to enforce a non-compete or non-solicitation agreement.  If passed, former employees would be permitted to take all of their former employers’ business secrets and client relationships and use them to benefit the new employer.
