Business leaders, Boise lawmaker say Idaho non-compete law went too far

December 15, 2017View for printing

More than 100 businesses have signed a letter in support of changing Idaho's non-compete law after it was amended less than a year ago, saying it went too far.

After Idaho legislators tweaked the law in 2016, workers who sign a non-compete contract have to prove they're not harming their employers if they want to go work for someone else.

That's drawn criticism from those in the tech startup world and certain lawmakers like state Rep. Ilana Rubel, D-Boise.
