D.C. Employees Freer from Non-competes

Washington, D.C.'s new "Ban on Non-Compete Agreements Amendment Act" took effect October 1 for employers with employees in the District.

The amended law provides exceptions for "highly compensated employees" (generally those who earn more than $150,000 per year), requires specific notice to employees who are subject to non-compete restrictions, and contains numerous changes and exceptions urged by the business community.

Employers with employees who are based in D.C. or who work primarily in the District should review and revise their standard agreements, policies, and practices for those employees to comply with the amended law.
