Christopher H. Lindstrom, a partner in Nutter’s Litigation Department and a member of the firm’s Labor, Employment and Benefits practice group, commented on Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo’s recent proposal to introduce legislation to restrict non-compete agreements to one year in The Boston Globe. In the article “In shift, DeLeo seeks to limit noncompete job contracts,” Chris, who recently co-authored a blog post on the subject, pointed out that non-compete agreements typically range from one to two years in Massachusetts, and that while judges can decide to amend a non-compete, two year agreements aren’t usually seen as overly burdensome. He notes that limiting noncompetes to twelve months would have a significant impact on many employers.
