State Representative Will Browsberger and Foley Hoag attorney, Michael Rosen, joined the Digital games cluster of the MassTLC for a discussion on the current status of the Massachusetts non-compete laws and new proposed legislation. Brownsberger has proposed new regulations that any non-compete agreement must be presented to a new employee in advance of employment, it is limited to one year, employees earning less than $75,000 would be exempt and legal fees would be available against the employer. For more information, reference Mr. Rosen's presentation (PDF) or check out his blog.
