Article Abstract
States Take Lead Role in Protecting Employee Rights
Keywords:  non-compete, no poach, employment regulation
Kurt Stanberry
This paper examines a controversy in U.S. employment regulation. Employers in the U.S. are using two techniques, no poach and non-compete agreements, to prevent employees from leaving for better paying jobs. This has a potentially negative effect on employee wages and on the economy as a whole, leading to stagnation in wage growth. Furthermore, it is a debatable ethical practice because it interferes with an employee's right to choose for whom they will work. Multiple states in the U.S. have begun to take action to prevent the use of these employment techniques, especially as applied to low-wage employees.
