AFTRA Urges Support For Michigan Anti-Non-Compete Bills
July 27, 2010 at 4:21 AM (PT)
Two bills introduced in the MICHIGAN legislature would ban non-compete clauses in broadcasters' contracts, and AFTRA's DETROIT chapter is urging its members to call their representatives to support the efforts.
A bill sponsored by State Rep. FRED MILLER and co-sponsored by 20 other representatives is making its way through the House; the bill, HB 5750, has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by one of the bill's co-sponsors, Rep. MARK MEADOWS. Another bill, SB 1068, sponsored by Sen. RAYMOND E. BASHAM, has been referred to the Senate Committee on Commerce and Tourism.
MICHIGAN is one of the states in which non-competes are presently enforceable.
