HB 2644 – Arizona

Status: In Process
Year Introduced: 2024
Link: https://apps.azleg.gov/BillStatus/BillOverview/80598

The bill proposes an amendment to Title 36 of the Arizona Revised Statutes by adding a new chapter that pertains to health care employment. Specifically, it introduces a definition for “noncompete clause” as a clause in an employment contract that restricts a medical resident or fellow from working within a certain geographic area for a specified time after their residency or fellowship ends. The bill prohibits employers from requiring medical residents or fellows, who are employed as a result of a matching process, to agree to a noncompete clause that would take effect after the completion of their residency or fellowship. This restriction applies to contracts entered into after the effective date of the act, meaning it would not be retroactive to existing contracts.
