Lance Gotko Publishes Article on Potential Changes to Enforceability of Non-Compete Provisions
Private Equity Law Report has published an article by Friedman Kaplan litigation partner Lance J. Gotko discussing two recent developments that may impact the enforceability of non-compete provisions in employment contracts. The New York State legislature has passed a bill that would ban virtually all employment-related non-compete provisions, and the Federal Trade Commission has announced that it intends to promulgate a rule that will broadly ban non-competes. The article analyzes the New York bill and the FTC’s proposed rule and explores their implications for the enforceability of non-compete agreements and how each may affect legal relationships if it becomes law.
