As the workforce gets more mobile and more global, there may be a corresponding rise in headaches for multinational companies that seek to apply and enforce restrictive covenants in their employment contracts. A new e-book from Mayer Brown indicates that there is plenty of variability in how noncompetes, nonsolicitations and other types of restrictive covenants can be used from state to state and country to country.

The law firm’s free e-book, “A Global Guide to Restrictive Covenants” [PDF], surveys developments in more than 40 countries to give attorneys a clear perspective on what they might be getting into when they enter into a noncompete or nonsolicitation agreement with an employee in a different state or country. The e-book also covers pension, benefits and stock plan issues that companies might face in each jurisdiction surveyed.
