Effective October 1, 2018, Massachusetts’ noncompete law received a legislative overhaul, leaving many employers to wonder:

  • What agreements are and are not covered by the new law?
  • What is sufficient consideration to support a noncompete for employees and new hires (if not garden leave)?
  • What best practices should my HR department implement regarding the technical requirements of the law (e.g., the 10-business-day requirement)?
  • What happens if I terminate an employee without “cause”? And, what is “cause”?
  • Does the new law affect the enforceability of noncompetes predating the law’s effective date?

At this event, which will be structured as a roundtable workshop, we will pose these questions and more to the noncompete experts. We will also brainstorm practical solutions and discuss best practices. Please come prepared with your best questions!
