Vermont courts continue to enforce reasonable non-compete agreements, at least for the time being.
However, recent federal and state legislation across the country may impact the enforceability of non-competes and an employer’s ability to hire workers. One particularly thorny issue facing employers with remote workers is the array of differing non-compete laws state to state. Employers need to be aware of the new and on-the-horizon legislation aimed at limiting the enforceability of post-employment non-compete agreements. Join DRM on September 7, 2022, for a back-to-school session of Non-Competition Agreements 101 for HR. The discussion will focus on what constitutes a reasonable non-compete in Vermont and the issues surrounding the use of non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants.
