D.C.’s Recent Ban on Non-Competes Forces Businesses to Rethink Policies, Agreements, and Practices

By Angela Hart-Edwards

The National Law Review

Non-competes in D.C. employment agreements and workplace policies are void and unenforceable against any employee, except licensed physicians with annual salaries in excess of $250,000 and whose primary business is “the delivery of medical services,” under the new Ban on Non-Compete Agreements Act of 2020. The ban became effective Jan. 11, 2021.

The law does not prohibit non-competes in sales agreements and acknowledges lawful provisions of restrictive covenants that restrict employees from disclosing the employer’s confidential, proprietary, or sensitive information, client list, customer list, or a trade secret, as legally defined.
