A non-compete agreement is a contract that limits a worker from taking specific actions after the employment relationship has been terminated. Basically, it is created to stop a worker from competing with the former company by abusing private intellectual property, sharing trade secrets, performing comparable occupational duties for another business in the same or a related industry, and taking other measures that might be classified as competitive.
Beginning a new occupation sometimes means signing an agreement governing the relationship between employee and employer. These contracts usually have a section called a noncompetition clause, also known as a non-compete agreement.

Did you know?
No matter which state you reside in, it is extremely crucial for non-compete agreements to be cautiously constructed so that they are not too limited.
In some states, if a court discovers that the agreement is too limited, it will be classified as invalid. In fact, these agreements are presumed to be invalid, but the majority of them will actually be considered valid as long as they do not go too far.
