Restrictive Covenants/Non-Compete Agreement Lawyers

Some employers require their employees to sign non-compete agreements or restrictive covenants which limit an employee from obtaining employment with a competitor after they leave the company. Non-compete agreements typically prevent the employee from working for a competitor and finding a job with an employer’s clients or soliciting other employees for a period of time within their region.

Non-compete agreements are legal and enforceable but the courts are open to investigating the causes and may be open to legal attack if they are “unreasonable,” i.e., overly long with respect to the time period restrictions or overly broad with respect to the geographical region. If you violate a non-compete agreement, you and your new employer could face legal action from your former employer, in which both an injunction to prevent you from working for your new employer and damages may be sought.

Confidentiality Agreements

Confidentiality agreements prevent employees from disclosing the private, “proprietary,” (i.e. confidential) information of their employers and are strictly enforced by the courts. Proprietary information may include internal strategies, product secrets that provide a competitive advantage over other products, etc.
