Non-Compete Agreements

Employers have rights to protect their relationships with their employees and confidential company information. For the employer, non-compete agreements help to ensure that the ideas and business practices shared with an employee don’t end up with the competition. For a non-compete agreement to be fair, the employee must receive something of value in exchange for the promise to refrain from competition. These agreements are often agreed upon early and take effect during and after the employer-employee relationship has been terminated.
