New Edition Of The Bloomberg BNA "Covenants Not To Compete: A State-by-State Survey"

ARLINGTON, Va., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  Bloomberg BNA has published the Eighth Edition of Covenants Not to Compete: A State-by-State Survey, delivering the information practitioners need to analyze, draft, and confidently litigate covenants not to compete and other restrictive covenants in the employment, partnership, franchise, license, and sale-of-business contexts.

The Eighth Edition provides new insights and guidance on covenant enforceability, including expanded discussions of:

  • The temporal and geographic limits of enforceable covenants not to compete
  • Assignability of noncompetition covenants
  • Consideration required to support a covenant executed well after the commencement of employment
  • Protectable interests
  • The relief available for covenant breach, including injunctive relief and damages

This treatise identifies issues with significant splits of authority across the states, including whether the mere leasing of property to a competitor violates the terms of a noncompete clause where the clause fails to include language specifically prohibiting such action. Additional topics at the end of relevant chapters address hundreds of make-or-break issues, including:

  • Context characterization: service agreement versus employment context
  • Effect of dissolution of employer
  • Grace periods to cure breach not presumed 
  • Effect of entering into covenant in individual capacity

The treatise is published in cooperation with the Employment Rights and Responsibilities Committee of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law. Section publications provide a balanced forum for the views and professional development of practitioners in labor and employment law. For more information on Section participation, please call the Section at 312.988.5813 or visit www.americanbar.org/groups/labor_law.html.
