Protect the competitiveness of your business.
Your business is unique, and you want to protect it from others who may want to start a similar business using your ideas or going to work somewhere else and using your business’ information to their advantage. Non-compete agreements require your new employees to sign a contract that prevents them from starting a competing business or going to work for a competitor within a certain period of time following the end of the employment relationship.
The main purpose of non-compete agreements is for businesses to limit the competition from those who have an intimate knowledge of how the business works. This prevents former employees from taking away clients, customers, and other employees. Although noncompete agreements can be a valuable way to protect your business, they must meet certain stipulations for time, geographic area, and what counts as competition.
