Larry Del Rossi and Dan Prokott Speak to SHRM About State Non-Compete Agreements

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) turned to labor and employment partners Larry Del Rossi and Dan Prokott for insight as a growing number of states, including New York and Minnesota, will potentially ban or have banned non-compete agreements.

He noted that HR professionals should stay up to date on state laws involving non-compete agreements and have accurate records of where their employees work.

The trend of banning non-competes is likely to spread to more states in the near future, Prokott stated. He explained that the state laws do not clearly define what a business competitor is, which can make things confusing for employers that use non-competes. Further, Prokott said that non-compete agreements have particularly high use in the health care, financial services and IT industries.
