Many businesses believe non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants are unenforceable. That simply isn’t true. While non-compete agreements can be disfavored, generally, that does not mean that they are unenforceable or not something that should be a part of your workplace. While all positions are not created equal and, therefore, will not always warrant the implementation of a non-compete agreement, they can be incredibly important to the protection of your business’ continued success and its competitive advantage over its competitors. The difficultly is ensuring that a business’ non-compete agreements are drafted correctly, particularly because the legal boundaries are the subject of consistent change.
Similarly, non-solicitation agreements can help protect against the loss of valued employees due to an invitation from a former employee, providing another source of protection for your company.
