Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Construction Industry Employment Freedom Act.

Provides that any non-compete agreement or non-solicitation agreement that violates that provision shall be void and unenforceable. Provides that the Department of Labor shall be responsible for enforcing the provisions of the Act. Provides that any employer found to be in violation of the Act shall be subject to a fine as determined by the Department of Labor, not to exceed $5,000 for each violation. Provides that any affected employee may bring a civil action against an employer for injunctive relief and damages for violations of the Act. Effective immediately.
