Will Your Old Employer Interfere With Your New Job?

When Restrictive Covenants And Noncompete Agreements Overstep
While many businesses have a legitimate interest in restricting who can walk away with proprietary information and trade secrets, they do not have the right to stop you from working. In fact, your old employer cannot use a noncompete agreement or restrictive covenant to:
- Stop you from working with a competitor company indefinitely
- Prevent you working in a region that does not impact the business
- Impose an undue hardship on you and your ability to work
Most importantly, any restrictive covenant or noncompete agreement must comply with local, state and federal laws, which increasing frown on their use.
