Noncompete, Nondisclosure or Misdemeanor?
The New Penalty Under C.R.S. 8-2-113 and Emerging Data Privacy Challenges
This presentation will explore the implications of the recent change to C.R.S. § 8-2-113, which makes violation of the statute restricting non-competition agreements a class 2 misdemeanor. We will also review the current state of Colorado case law as well as dos and don'ts in crafting acceptable non-competes under the statutory requirements.
At the same time, certain restrictive covenants are becoming less and less optional.
New data privacy laws require that employees exposed to confidential customer data sign nondisclosure agreements. These agreements, however, may also implicate C.R.S. § 8-3-113. Business handling protected customer data will have to navigate their obligations under C.R.S. § 8-2-113 while also enforcing acceptable nondisclosure agreements under emerging data privacy laws, including the Colorado Privacy Act.
