This is a past event. Watch a recording of the discussion and explore EIG’s key takeaways.


On Monday, April 17, the Economic Innovation Group (EIG) hosted a webinar to discuss the harmful economic effects of non-compete agreements and federal efforts underway to reform their widespread use across the labor market.

EIG President and CEO John Lettieri spoke with Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Todd Young (R-IN) in a pre-recorded discussion about the Workforce Mobility Act, recently reintroduced bipartisan, bicameral legislation to limit the use of non-compete agreements that negatively impact American workers.

Washington Post Columnist and Editorial Board Member Heather Long then guided a discussion with panelists Evan Starr, Professor at University of Maryland; Peter Gassner, CEO of Veeva Systems; and Steve Cox, President of Steam Logistics about the adverse impacts that non-compete agreements have on worker mobility, American innovation, and economic dynamism.
