Noncompete laws continue to evolve nationwide

Noncompete laws are changing nationwide. Here are some recent moves regarding the policies in three states:

1. In Washington, legislation further amending noncompete policy was passed by the state's Senate. The bill adds a range of protections to workers following problems that have arisen since the state moved to restrict noncompetes in 2019.

2. In January, California added a requirement for businesses that previously held employees to now-unenforceable noncompete agreements. Employers with employees or former employees in the state who are subject to noncompetition provisions had to provide individualized written notice that the noncompetition clause or agreement is void by Feb. 14.

3. The Florida Legislature is considering two bills that would restrict the use of noncompete agreements for physicians in the state.
