Supreme Court Provides New Clarity, Protection for Public Employee Whistleblowers

Supreme Court unanimously affirms the First Amendment protects public employees from workplace retaliation for providing testimony or participating in workplace investigations.

Non-Competes As A Condition Of Employment

The 21st century success of Michigan's new economy will depend on throwing off the shackles of 20th century thinking on employment non-compete agreements. In the highly skilled professions, alarmingly high numbers Michigan's technical and professional workers are subject to forced "non-compete" agreements as a condition of employment (as high as 50 percent on some sectors). This predominately includes highly skilled workers in the new economy that Michigan wants - and needs - to build. While some reports suggest the use of non-competes is actually on the rise [http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/09/business/noncompete-clauses-increasingly-pop-up-in-array-of-jobs.html?hpw&rref=business&_r=0]. Recent legal and business studies add to an increasing body of evidence showing how states that allow and enforce "non-competes" are at a competitive disadvantage in development of high-tech and highly skilled job sectors. Across the country, progressive states that want to attract and retain new business and high paying jobs are taking a hard look at the impact of non-competes.
