This week, we bring you our special Spilling Secrets podcast series on the future of non-compete and trade secrets law.

Non-Compete Agreements in 2023: What Employers Need to Know

Restrictions on non-competes have dominated the headlines this year. The Federal Trade Commission has proposed a rule banning non-compete agreements nationwide, Minnesota became the first state to ban non-competes since the 1890s, and the General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board instructed regional offices to evaluate non-competes for potential violations of the National Labor Relations Act. In this special live episode of Spilling Secrets, Epstein Becker Green attorneys Peter A. Steinmeyer and Erik W. Weibust sat down with guests Gina Sarracino, Chief Counsel of Employment and Labor at Thomson Reuters, and Evan Michael, Executive Vice President and General Counsel at NFP, to discuss the hectic state of non-competes in 2023.
