ASA Publishes Update on Noncompete Law in 2023

Businesses across almost all major industries use restrictive covenants for a variety of reasons—including nondisclosure, nonsolicitation, and noncompete agreements. Noncompete agreements, in particular, have come under increasing federal and state scrutiny in recent years. While only three states prohibit noncompete agreements almost entirely (California, North Dakota, and Oklahoma), the trend has been for states to limit the use of noncompete agreements by imposing minimum salary thresholds, notice provisions, and other requirements. A new legal article from ASA examines some of the major changes to noncompete law enacted at the federal and state level in 2022 and forecasts what businesses can expect for 2023.

Plus, this year’s ASA Staffing Law Conference, May 18–19 in Washington, DC, will have even more information for staffing professionals on restrictive covenants—including a session titled “Hands Off, They’re Mine! Protective Staffing Agency Employees and Goodwill.” Learn more and register at
