Senators thinking about national standards for non-competes?

For years, academics have debated the impact of post-employment non-competes on the economy and workforce. Apparently taking interest in this issue, earlier this month a bipartisan group of United States Senators, including Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, wrote to the United States Government Accountability Office asking it to review and report on non-competes, including how prevalent they are, how they’re used in low-wage fields, the impact of the workforce and economy (including innovation), and actions states have taken to limit the use of non-competes. A copy of the letter can be found here.

Non-competes, non-solicits and similar agreements continue to be viewed with great scrutiny.  It is important to review these types of agreements frequently to comport with changing legal standards.
