Non-Compete Agreements

Non-Compete Agreements

A non-compete agreement (also called a nondisclosure agreement) generally applies to an employee who has confidential information about a company. For example, a high-level executive or an employee with access to customer lists may need to sign a non-compete agreement. The contract essentially restricts the employee’s ability to work in the same or a similar industry for a certain period of time after being terminated, laid off, or leaving his or her job. Employees throughout various industries and occupations are sometimes required to sign non-compete agreements. These can be drafted as part of an employment contract or as a separate document. The Previant Law Firm, S.C. can help if you have questions, concerns, or a dispute regarding this type of employment contract. Our employment contract lawyers are here to protect your interests to the fullest extent.

Why Non-Compete Agreements Are Used
Non-compete agreements are important parts of certain employment contracts and are used to prevent an employee from using information gained during his or her employment to enter into competition with his or her employer.
A non-compete agreement may cover such essential information as:

  • Company operations
  • Trade secrets
  • Customer lists
  • Business practices
  • Future products
  • Marketing plans
