Non-Compete Agreements— Non-Compete Agreement / Employment Contract Issues
A client worked as a commissioned salesmen for many years. His written employment contract contained a non-compete agreement. After leaving the job, the employer sued and sought an injunction to prevent the employee from working in his field, which would have been devastating for him and his family. The firm assisted the employee in avoiding an injunction, and also working out a resolution that allowed both him and his former employer the opportunity to move forward doing profitable work, without further litigation or ongoing disagreements. It was a good resolution for the client, who was faced with the loss of his ability to work in his occupation, due to a written agreement he had signed and worked under for years, several years before he retained our firm to assist him.
Employment Law – Non-compete Agreements
The firm assisted a client with evaluating whether a new job offer would violate a pre-existing non-compete agreement the client signed with a former employer. Fortunately, the client was able to accept the new employment opportunity, without violating the non-compete agreement with the old employer.
