ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general says Examination Management Services, Inc., a nationwide medical information services provider, has agreed to stop using non-compete agreements for most employees in New York.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says Wednesday the agreements prohibited all departing employees from working for competitors for nine months within 50 miles of any location where they worked for the company.

Most of the 120 EMSI employees in New York travel around the state to conduct routine physical examinations, draw blood, and collect specimens for lab testing.

New York law prohibits non-compete agreements except in limited circumstances, such as when an employee has unique skills or access to trade secrets.

Schneiderman says keeping rank-and-file workers from finding new jobs is “unjust.”

A call to the Irving, Texas-based company was not immediately returned.
