Is A Non-Compete Agreement Enforceable?

A non-compete agreement is designed to protect a business owner’s investment by restricting potential competition. There are many factors that go into determining whether one is enforceable.

Three Factors

  • First. The agreement must be supported by a promise by the employer other than just continued employment (i.e. a promotion, a raise, training) or it must be signed at the time employment commences.
  • Second. The agreement must be reasonable in duration and in geographic scope.
  • Third. The agreement must be necessary to protect the employer and must be narrowly tailored to accomplish that goal.
