Do Not Compete Clause/Covenant
Covenants to not compete are agreements that restrict the ability of an individual to work in a particular field for a certain period of time and within a certain geographic area. These type of agreements are becoming ever more frequent seeing as the allow employers can better protect their interests by preventing their employees from engaging in unfair competition against them; however, these contracts can often prevent an employee from exploring a promising career path due to an agreement that meant little to them when they were signing.
Because of this, it is critical that both contractors take time while drafting their covenant not to compete and employees spend time evaluating their covenant not to compete before signing. The attorneys here at Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC have experience in this particular field and can help counsel you all stages of this process whether it be in drafting, signing, or later determining the enforceability of a covenant not to compete.
