Handling potentially unfair non-compete agreements in Maryland

In September 2014, a Jimmy John's employee amended a lawsuit against the company to include an allegation that the company's non-compete clause is too broad. When an employee signs an employment contract with the company, he or she agrees not to work for a competitor for two years after leaving the company. The non-compete agreement includes any company located within three miles of a Jimmy John's establishment.

How Maryland protects employees from sexual harassment

The Maryland Fair Employment Practices Act and Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 provide people with the necessary legal basis to bring suits against others for sexual harassment. The MFEP applies to Maryland employers, labor organizations and employment agencies. Membership clubs, elected officials, religious corporations, educational institutions, associations and societies are not covered under this law.
