About the Program
A wave of recent legislative enactments and judicial decisions is changing the landscape of restrictive covenant law. For example, a recent decision by the Georgia State-wide Business Court underscores the uncertainty in Georgia restrictive covenant litigation, both with regard to what a court may do in modifying an otherwise overbroad non-compete and, further, the determination that a non-recruitment provision is subject to Georgia’s Restrictive Covenant Act (as there is no provision in the Act which expressly relates to a non-recruitment provision). Meanwhile, legislators in Illinois, Maryland, Oregon, Washington, and the District of Columbia have enacted statutes and ordinances significantly altering who may be bound by restrictive covenants and how they will be enforced. Most recently, President Biden signed an executive order directing the Federal Trade Commission to “curtail the unfair use of non-compete clauses and other clauses or agreements that may unfairly limit worker mobility.” Join FordHarrison partners Jeff MokotoffBen Fryer and Leslie Hartnett for an in-depth discussion of this decision and other developments impacting the litigation of restrictive covenants.
