Noncompetition Enforceability Thresholds
As per RCW 49.62.040
, the department of labor and industries (L&I) required to adjust noncompete enforceability thresholds annually to account for inflation using the consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers (CPI-W) index. These thresholds determine whether a noncompetition clause or agreement is enforceable. There are two thresholds, one for employees (RCW 49.62.020
) and one for independent contractors (RCW 49.62.030
). The table below shows the new calculated figures.
