Kurt L. Binder of Seder & Chandler, LLP Interviewed by the Worcester Business Journal about Proposed Non-Compete Legislation

Kurt L. Binder, a partner with Seder & Chandler, LLP who concentrates his practice on commercial litigation and employment disputes, was interviewed by Livia Gershon for a special article appearing in the Worcester Business Journal regarding Gov. Duval Patrick's recent decision to support new legislation prohibiting non-compete agreements. The interview with Mr. Binder appeared in the April 28, 2014 edition of the Journal.

During the interview, Mr. Binder expressed his opinion that the complexity of the case law around non-competes is part of the problem and that, even if a new employer believes the worker is legally entitled to take a new job, they may not want to face the expense of responding to litigation by the former employer. Mr. Binder noted that, "it's often somewhat unpredictable, based on judge's views".
