SOLD OUT- CLE: Non-Compete Agreements in MA: What You Need to Know Now

Wednesday, September 12, 2018 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This program is now sold out. To be added to the waitlist, please contact Taylor Richard at

After a decade in gestation, new M.G.L. c. 149 § 24L – with important protections and guidance for employers and employees in widely-used non-compete agreements (NCAs) between them – was  passed unanimously by the General Court, was signed into law by Governor Baker on August 10, 2018, and will be effective October 1, 2018.  Enacted with it were M.G.L. c. 93 §§ 42-42G, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, enacted in 48 other States, “tweaked” by the first intellectual property law committee of the BBA in 1992-94 and introduced in every General Court since.

Please join us for the BBA's 10th Annual Trade Secrets and Non-Compete Symposium. Join with the legislators who sponsored the legislation and the experts who helped draft it for an interactive discussion of:

  • the new legal landscape for NCAs and protection of employer confidential information
  • open issues (e.g., operation of “garden leave”), legislative history and future resolution
  • strategies and best practices
