The Allegheny County Medical Society has reported that the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has passed a bill to bar non-compete agreements in healthcare employment.  Click here for a copy of the Press Release, and a copy of the legislation.  There are limitations:

  • The bill is effective immediately for new restrictive covenant only after current license renewal
  • It allows undefined liquidated damages
