Health Care Trifecta: Non-Compete, Non-Solicitaion, and Confidentiality Agreements in Michigan—What Works and What Doesn't
Michelle D. Bayer, Michael H. Rhodes, and Warren H. Krueger
Restrictive covenants, and their enforcement, have a long history in Michigan jurisprudence. Under common law, restrictive covenant agreements were enforced if they qualified as reasonable. In 1905, Michigan's legislature enacted the state's first anti-trust statute . . . which generally prohibited restrictive covenants, subject to limited exceptions. These restrictions remained in place from 1905 until 1985 when the legislature enacted the Michigan Antitrust Reform Act. As recognized by the Court of Appeals, restrictive covenants have long been used in a variety of settings in Michigan outside of the employer-employee relationship. View the White Paper PDF
