Non-Competition Agreements

These agreements are a common feature in employment contracts. These agreements are designed to protect the interests of employers, who invest heavily in training of new employees. As a result, they seek to restrict employees from performing similar work for a set period of time in the event they leave the company.

There is a degree of uncertainty surrounding non-compete agreements, as courts do not always uphold them. As a result, it is worth your time to discuss your situation with us if your past employer is threatening to take legal action. It may turn out that the non-compete is unreasonable and unlikely to be upheld.

Non-Solicitation Agreements

Despite being often lumped together with non-competition agreements, these agreements are not the same thing. A non-solicitation agreement allows an employee to work for a competitor, but bars them from soliciting the clients of their past employer. As is the case with non-compete agreements, agreements that are too broad in scope run the risk of not being enforced.
