A Practical Guide to Non-Compete AgreementsBy Nina Kaufman, Esq.
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.
