Liam O’Connell Quoted on Proposed Noncompete Ban in SHRMPrint PDF
Liam O’Connell, a partner and chair of Nutter’s Labor, Employment and Benefits practice group, commented on recent legislation that proposes to ban noncompetes in SHRM. The article, “Democrats Propose Bans on Noncompete, No-Poach Agreements,” outlines the proposed bill, which is aimed at stopping employers from entering into no-poach agreements and requiring workers to sign noncompete clauses in employment contracts. “These lawmakers view these problems as more acute as economic power and opportunity are more concentrated, as corporate consolidations continue,” said Liam, adding that this legislative push is consistent with actions taken in recent years to ban what Democratic lawmakers view as agreements that depress wages and unfairly limit workers' opportunities to advance their careers.
