Governor Kate Brown signed House Bill 3236 into law. The effect is that in the employment context, 18 months is now the maximum length of time that a non-competition term can last pursuant to an agreement entered into at the time of employment or a bona fide promotion.  That changes Oregon law, which previously set the maximum non-competition period to 2 years. This change will only apply to Agreements entered into after January 1, 2016.
