The Workforce Mobility Act proposes to prohibit employers from using non-compete agreements except in very limited circumstances. This follows years of similar consideration by Congress, regulatory agencies, courts, state legislatures and more. 

In the throes of the Me-Too movement, I saw the scrutiny shift to non-disclosure agreements (NDA). A recent article in the New York Times caught my attention. It raises a valid point and led me to repeat a question I often ask, "Why?"

Whether it is a non-compete, NDA, or a no-solicitation agreement - as an employer, you should understand why you want what you want. What are you trying to protect?
