Minnesota is now the fourth state in the U.S. to ban noncompetition covenants in agreements between employers and employees, under a bill signed into law by Governor Tim Walz on May 24, 2023. Similar statutes already exist in California, Oklahoma and North Dakota.
When Does the Law Take Effect?
The law is effective immediately, but only applies to contracts and amendments entered into on or after July 1, 2023―i.e., the law does not apply to covenants not to compete entered into prior to July 1, 2023.
