NLRB General Counsel Issues Memo on Non-Competes

On May 31, 2023, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo issued a memo stating her position that non-compete agreements violate the National Labor Relations Act. So, what does this mean for employers? Epstein Becker Green attorneys and Spilling Secrets hosts Peter A. Steinmeyer and Erik W. Weibust are joined by featured guest attorneys Steven M. Swirsky and Erin E. Schaefer to forecast the impact employers may face in the wake of this memo.
