Not surprisingly, California is once again passing employment laws that impact companies beyond the state. Specifically, the Golden State is continuing its war against noncompete clauses to conform to case law stating that such clauses are void for any employee working in California — even if the employment contract containing the noncompete was signed in another state. Moreover, there is a February 14, 2024 deadline to inform employees with void clauses that their noncompete clauses are unenforceable. Our colleagues at the Global IP & Technology Law Blog have addressed the laws in question in more detail. Please give it a read.
