Georgia Legislature Considering Non-Compete Reform

Add Georgia to the ever-growing list of states intent on reforming non-compete laws.

In recent years, Idaho and Oregon have passed significant legislation, and Massachusetts is contemplating an outright ban on non-competes. Georgia is unquestionably one of the five most employee-friendly states in terms of non-competes - up there even with California and Montana.

A copy of the Georgia House of Representatives Final Report on non-compete reform can be found by clicking here. Seyfarth Shaw's blog, Trading Secrets, contains an excellent discussion of the legislative action down in Georgia.
