Employment Restriction Act 2016
In 2016, Utah law makers passed a new version that regulates the use of non-compete employment agreement contracts in Utah. The new legislative act specifically:
- Bans the employee non-compete agreements from surmounting one year post employment termination
- Expects an employer to pay for the cost of the employee litigation when the employer seeks to enforce a non-compete agreement when it is an unenforceable agreement.
