When drafted properly, non-compete agreements protect the employer and the employee. The right language in the contract can ensure that both parties are clear on what is expected of them during the period of employment and after the employment relationship has been terminated.
Chrisman Ramsey & Foster PC has extensive experience drafting, reviewing, revising, enforcing, and/or defending non-compete/non-competition agreements for all types of employment relationships.
Many people think that non-compete agreements are simply a tool for employers to prevent key employees from working for competitors. The truth is, the language in a non-compete must be reasonable in the length of time and scope, including the type of work and geographic region. We often work with professionals who want to ensure that a current employer cannot restrict them from practicing in their chosen profession upon leaving employment.
Before you sign a non-compete agreement, or before you ask your employee to sign one, make sure you understand what you are agreeing to. The courts look at non-competition agreements as valid contracts, but only if they are properly drafted and meet the requirements of the Texas Business and Commerce Code. Contact us and let us explain all these details to meet your specific needs.
