University Pres. Rescinds Criticized Nondisclosure Agreements

Until last week, interactions between Virginia Commonwealth University President Michael Rao and employees working in his office were subject to a rather unusual restriction, namely, a complete prohibition on the latter concerning any discussion about Rao or his family members inside or outside the office.

Entertainment Co., "Legend" at Odds over Noncompete Agreement

Live Nation Entertainment Inc., a major player in the concert promotion business, hired Michael Cohl, a stated "legend in the concert industry," as its chairman in 2008. A large part of Cohl's allure was his expected ability to ink major stars to contracts covering concerts, recordings and sponsorship deals.

Key Hires and Noncompetes: Evidence of a Turning Economy?

Here's a not-often considered barometer for assessing whether the economy is experiencing an uptick in activity and worker movement: the amount of media coverage and litigation concerning noncompete and confidentiality agreements.

Georgians Pass Amendment Endorsing Non-Compete Changes

We noted in a previous blog post (October 4) the angst and passions kindled in many Georgia residents when the topic of non-compete agreements comes up. Georgia has long been among only a handful of states with law that voids an entire non-compete agreement if any aspect of it is deemed illegal. Most states, by contrast, enable a judge to strike a specific provision if it is found to be against public policy and uphold the remainder of a contract executed between an employer and worker.

Congress Demands Copy of DOD Non-Disclosure Agreement

When many people hear the words non-compete or non-disclosure agreement, they tend to think of contractual arrangements between employers and employees in the private work force. A few of our previous blog posts have featured stories on non competes in this vein, such as an August 2 post in which we discussed non-disclosure agreements between BP and marine scientists, and a September 13 blog focusing on non-compete clauses in college coaching contracts.That is far from routinely being the case, though, as a number of non-disclosure agreements are also executed in the public sphere, between government bodies and employees, including the military.
