How do former employees breach non-compete agreements

Posted on Tuesday, February 9th, 2010 at 3:43 am    

When many individuals are employed by a company, they are often required to sign a non-compete agreement. While the terms of these agreements vary, they often require employees who later leave the company to not work for a competitor for a certain period of time.

Employees breach these non-compete agreements when they break any of the provisions outlined in the agreement. For instance, if the non-compete agreements says that the employee may not work for a competitor for at least six months, then the employee violates the agreement if he or she is employed by a competitor within six months.

However, some employees may argue that although they are employed by a competitor, they are serving a role that is non-competitive. This issue has been at the center of many legal cases.
