June 2017

The 2017 Nevada Legislature has concluded. As you are aware from reading my previous newsletters, businesses have been under siege throughout this legislative session. For the most part, through the Governor's Veto Pen, businesses have been able to dodge many of the bullets fired at them. However, as you will see below, the legislature has materially and immediately affected your business' ability to protect itself from competition of former employees. This change may create a dire result, particularly on small businesses that have limited tools and resources to protect their work.


The provisions of AB 276 became enforceable upon its passage. What that means is that, without true advance notice to you, your existing covenants not to compete with your employees may have become void and unenforceable. This opens you up to greater uncertainty and the possibility of more extensive litigation. Please read HERE to learn about the comprehensive effect of this new law.

There are a number of new laws that will require your attention, and perhaps, action. Gordon Law was here for you throughout the legislative session and will now be here for you to help your business adapt. Gordon Law is preparing a seminar for its clients and the community at large to discuss new laws affecting your business. We will keep you updated as to the date, time and location of the seminar. However, please contact me if you have any questions before that time.
