Now comes the latest California Supreme Court ruling, which has established a ‘bright line’ rule in the case of Edwards v. Arthur Andersen. The ruled on August 7 that California employers cannot enforce agreements limiting competition by former employees, except within very narrow statutory exceptions.

If you really believe you need a Non-Compete Agreement for your employees, please consult your attorney. And read this excellent article from Cooley Godward & Kronish LLP.
