Recently, Louise A. Herman, Esq. of Herman Law Group spoke with Pat Murphy of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly on the National Labor Relations Board’s general counsel targeting noncompete agreements with a recent memorandum titled, “Non-Compete Agreements that Violate the National Labor Relations Act.” This memorandum concludes that some provisions in these agreements, which prevent employees from accepting certain types of jobs or operating certain types of businesses, are typically unlawful under Section 7 of the National Labor Act. Herman showed her support for the pro-union, pro-employee stance taken by the general counsel by stating, “It’s a bold move.
