Colorado Employment Law Updates – 2018
April 2 – Gov. Hickenlooper signed a law governing physician noncompete agreements
On April 2, 2018, Governor Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 18-082, a law that continues to prohibit employment, partnership or corporate agreements with physicians from containing noncompete agreements that restrict physicians from practicing medicine. It also continues to allow noncompetes to include provisions that prohibit physicians from soliting current or prospective patients. However, it created an exception for solicitation of patients with rare disorders the physician treating.
The new law became effective when signed.
