During the past few years, non-competes — agreements that employees sign limiting their future right to work in positions that compete with their current employer — have been the subject of remarkable controversy.

In this article, Dylan Steinberg and Jon Cochran, along with co-author Maria Kalogredis, Deputy General Counsel of Wawa, Inc., discuss the current arguments around non-compete agreements, what makes these agreements so susceptible to regulatory shifts, and the dilemma created for employers by the Nevada Supreme Court in Golden Road Motor Inn, Inc. v. Islam. The article also advises employers to keep up with appellate decisions, limit the language of their own policies, and revisit their standards regularly.
