The Nevada Legislature recently passed, and the governor approved, a new law addressing employee non-compete agreements, which went into effect on June 3, 2017. The law expressly defines the standards for enforceable non-compete provisions, as well as provisions that may not be enforced. And, most notably, the new law requires courts to modify certain (but not all) non-compete agreements if found to be overbroad in scope or restraint, apparently in response to a Nevada Supreme Court ruling last year that essentially abolished such blue-penciling. The text of the new law can be found in Assembly Bill No. 276.
