We support New York City Council bill 108-2018 to restrict the use of non-compete agreements in contracts for freelance work.
Yesterday, I testified at a hearing before New York City Council’s Committee on Civil Service and Labor in support of City Council bill 108-2018 to restrict the use of non-compete agreements in contracts for freelance work.
Introduced by 39th District Council member Brad Lander, this bill would:
- Prohibit hirers from restricting freelancers’ ability to seek other work unless they agree to compensate them during that period.
- Grant freelancers the right to seek nullification of non-compete agreements from the Office of Labor Standards.
- Permit investigation and legal action against employers who exhibit a pattern of violations.
