Employers often request that employees agree sign a “non-compete” clause as part of an employment contract, limiting or eliminating the potential of post-employment competition. In many circumstances, such non-competition agreements are not enforceable. Our courts do not like to interfere with an individual’s ability to earn a living any more than necessary to protect an employer’s legitimate rights.
If you have been asked to sign a non-competition agreement, or agreed to one in the past and are now wondering what you can and cannot do, allow us to review your employment contract and provide you with strategic advice. The Rudner MacDonald team of employment lawyers has a wealth of experience dealing with this area of employment law, on behalf of both employers and employees, and offers objective, trustworthy counsel based on this solid foundation.
