It’s official – CA noncompete agreements are unlawful

Business by on August 10, 2008 at 7:09 am

Non-competes have long been unenforceable in CA, but all doubts have been wiped away in a recent ruling by the State Supreme Court.

The unanimous ruling states that:

An employer cannot by contract restrain a former employee from engaging in his or her profession, trade or business

Good coverage at SFGate & Slashdot.

I’d obviously like to see other states follow suit, but I’m not aware of any progress being made towards that end.
