Greg Care was tapped as an authority on employment matters impacting healthcare professionals by Bloomberg News regarding new non-compete laws in the healthcare industry affecting Maryland.

Brown, Goldstein & Levy partner Greg Care was recently quoted in a Bloomberg Law article offering insights into the reasoning behind new a non-compete law affecting those in the Maryland healthcare industry and the impact of a new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule banning nearly all non-competes.

On April 25, 2024, Maryland Governor Wes Moore signed into law a ban on non-compete agreements for licensed healthcare professionals in Maryland with a total annual compensation of $350,000 or less, and limits on non-competes for those earning compensation above that threshold.

Greg was tapped as an authority on employment matters impacting healthcare workers by Bloomberg Law and shared his insight on what the new laws mean and who they will stand to benefit.

 “At the heart of it, this is about access for patients as much as it is about the financial and professional opportunities of providers,” Greg told Bloomberg, adding that due to lawsuits challenging the FTC rule, “the advocates who care about this issue are pretty well aware of the fact that the FTC rule is not certain to go into effect.”

“The lingering question of whether the FTC can regulate nonprofit hospitals prompted legislators in Maryland to move forward with a bill that would apply to non-competes among for-profit and nonprofit companies,” he continued.
