50 State Noncompete Chart Updated

Having just completed my most-recent review of every state’s pending and recently enacted noncompete legislation, I have updated the BRR 50 State Noncompete Chart today (April 27, 2019) to reflect those changes. (See “New trade secret and noncompete legislation: What’s already happened and what you can expect for the rest of the year in every state for the background.) While doing that, I also made it more searchable (you can now search by state, as opposed to having to scroll to find the state you’re looking for) and to update some cites.

Though a stand-alone resource, the noncompete chart works as a companion to our 50 state and federal survey chart of trade secret laws, which I originally prepared on August 14, 2016, and have updated as laws have changed; it is also current as of today (April 27, 2019).

The chart has been revised through today April 27, 2019.

Note that Washington state law is likely to change in the near future – so be on the lookout. See “New trade secret and noncompete legislation: What’s already happened and what you can expect for the rest of the year in every state.”
