The New Noncompete Law: A Practitioner’s Deep Dive

  • Boston Bar Association 16 North Beacon Street Boston, MA 02108 United States (map)

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! Seating is limited due to format, so be sure to register today!**
