Non-Compete Agreements Offer Smart Protection For Businesses
Many businesses find themselves in need of non-compete agreements in order to protect confidential company information. Whether your need is to protect trade secrets, client lists or classified company data, all employment-related non-compete agreements operate in the same manner: they help to prevent an employee from taking protected information to a competitor.
Drafting a successfully binding non-compete agreement can be complicated since the law places great importance on a person’s right to earn a living. The agreement must protect your business interests but have enough leeway that the employee can still earn a living in the same field, if they so desire.
It is for this reason that consulting a qualified business lawyer is a must when you need a non-compete agreement drawn up.
