Employment Contracts with Covenants Not to Compete Clauses

Many business and employment contracts contain restrictive agreements commonly referred to as non-compete or covenants not to compete (CNC) clauses. These binding agreements are designed to prohibit an employee from working with their employer's competitor in the same trade or industry, upon termination or resignation of employment. As an employee, this can greatly limit your ability to pursue work or receive a higher salary according to the time frame and geographical location that is specified in the non-compete clause.

Some non-compete clauses are unenforceable if any part of the employment contract seems unreasonable. While these restrictions are often examined more closely between employee and employer contracts, covenants not to compete between two businesses are entirely different and give both parties equal footing in terms of the negotiation and bargaining powers. That's why it is important to consult an experienced attorney who is well-versed in all areas of business law.
