Massachusetts Noncompetition Agreement Act Of 2018

It is not specific to Massachusetts, but offers substantial resources on this subject, including surveys in 50 states and The Changing Landscape of Trade Secrets Laws and noncompete Laws Around the Country. A non-compete clause concluded in the context of access to the labour market must meet the following requirements: A unique aspect of Massachusetts` new non-competition clause is the requirement that non-competition agreements contain a „garden holiday clause“ or any other mutually agreed consideration. A „garden leave clause“ requires the employer to pay the worker, for the duration of the non-competition clause, at least 50% of the worker`s highest salary in the last two years of employment. The employer`s obligation to pay for gardening leave is only relieved if the worker breaches the agreement. . . .
