Regulation of non-competition agreements or provisions has traditionally been governed by state law. As set forth below, however, a new Executive Order may signal that change is coming on the federal level.

Non-competes vary in duration and geographic scope and may be part of a standalone agreement, a larger employment agreement, or a narrower set of restrictions.
