New York’s Legislature concluded its legislative session with a flurry of activity, including the passage of four notable employment-related bills. In sum, these four bills (i) ban the use of non-compete agreements, (ii) prohibit certain mandatory meetings and communications between employers and their employees, (iii) revise the requirements needed to enter into enforceable nondisclosure agreements resolving claims of discrimination, and (iv) require hiring parties and freelancers/contractors to enter into written agreements for services provided in excess of $800. These bills will become law if they are signed by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.
