Non-compete agreements sometimes lead to disagreements

Non-compete agreements are important tools for business owners because they help to ensure that people who leave their business won't jump over to a competitor and share the things that make the business successful. Many people associate these agreements with high-level executives. Some people might find it shocking that some businesses uses non-compete agreements for almost every employee.

Last year, it came to light that sandwich makers at Jimmy John's have non-compete agreements. This shows that even entry-level positions can sometimes be a good fit for a non-compete agreement.

The trouble with non-compete agreements comes into the picture when an employee and an employer don't agree on the terms of the agreement. In some cases, employees might think that they shouldn't have to comply with the contractual obligation. In that case, it is important for the employee to seek out legal answers about that obligation.

There are several points to consider when it comes to non-compete agreements. One of these is the length of the non-compete agreement. In some cases, the agreement might also cover investments, job restrictions and geographical restrictions. In all of those cases, scrutinizing the terms is vital to determine if they are enforceable.

We can help you to go over the non-compete agreement you have questions about. If you are thinking about taking another opportunity and want to know if you can do so without violating the agreement, let us help you figure that out. You don't have to just assume that you must bypass opportunities because of a non-compete clause that you have with a current or former employer.
