    Utah Signs Non Compete Clause Bill Into Law

    http://www.adweek.com/tvspy/utah-gov...nto-law/202381


    Non-compete clauses have been banned in some cases in Utah.

    Governor Gary Herbert signed a law yesterday restricting the use of the clause if a broadcast employee is making less than $47,500 a year. The non-compete clause prevented broadcasters, specially on-air personalities, from moving to another station in the market within a certain time period after their contract expires.

    While employers took a stand against the measure, saying money is invested into the promotion and development of on-air personalities, reporters supported the bill. The non-compete clause often forces talent to relocate in order to find a better paying job.
    This Utah law will have some implications of broadcast contracts across the country.

    I argue this Utah policy would need to hit places like California, New York, Washington D.C, Texas and Maryland where Network O&O's are located, Sinclair (Maryland based), Nexstar(Texas) to make Non Compete Clause easily enforced.
