From my colleague Stephen Furnari comes this intelligent article on how to make employment non-compete agreements “stick.”  Courts are generally loathe to enforce an agreement that would keep someone out of gainful employment; companies are loathe to employ people who will walk away with their customer base and trade secrets.

So a delicate balance needs to be struck.  Steve’s article provides eight tips to crafting well-honed non-compete provisions and six practical steps to take if you think your employee has violated the non-compete agreement.  At the end of the day, though, speak to a business attorney before putting any of this into place.
