Here are three major noncompete wins that Becker's has reported on since June 27:
1. A judge has ruled that Commonwealth Health's physician group, Commonwealth Physician Network, cannot prevent its former surgeon from working locally for Geisinger.
2. Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont signed into law an act that amends the state's noncompete law for physicians and adds restrictions. Now, physician noncompete agreements entered into or amended on or after July 1, 2016, may last no longer than a year or extend beyond a 15-mile radius from the physician's primary site of practice.
3. The New York State Legislature passed a bill aiming to stop employers from entering into noncompete agreements with their employees
