New Jersey Noncompete Agreement Lawyer
Noncompete agreements are critical for employers. By signing a noncompete agreement, an employee is agreeing not to engage in a profession or trade that competes with his or her employer. Because employers invest considerable time and resources in the training of employees, and often divulge secrets of their trade, the enforceability and effectiveness of noncompete agreements is essential.
Noncompete agreements place limitations on employees for a specified period of time concerning the type of employment and geographic area in which the employee may seek new employment or start a competing business. Noncompete agreements should be carefully drafted, reviewed and contemplated by all parties to minimize the likelihood of future conflicts.
