How Worker Non-Competes are Keeping Wages Down & Suppressing Civil Rights — and How We’re Fighting Back in the Trump Era

February 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Today, tens of millions of workers in the United States are subject to coercive non-compete clauses buried deep in the clauses of their employment contracts that prevent them from leaving their jobs and going to work anywhere that might be “competition”—from fast-food franchise workers who can’t move to another restaurant that pays better than minimum wage to doctors moving to another hospital closer to their kids’ daycare. Join the People’s Parity Project, the Labor and Employment Action Project, and Terri Gerstein, the former Labor Bureau Chief to the New York AG to talk about coercive non-competes, workers’ rights, and how states, cities, organizers, and law students are fighting back.

February 4 at 12 in WCC 3019. Lunch will be provided.
