Non-Compete Agreements

Non-Compete Agreements in Conroe, TX

Learn More with a Conroe Business Law Attorney

Employers may ask their prospective employees, contractors, or business partners to sign a non-compete agreement as a condition of entering into a business arrangement. For potential employees and contractors, the non-compete helps to ensure that the employee or contractor does not use confidential information acquired during their employment against the company in the future. For business partners, non-competes help to set the rules for engagement so that the parties can work together without worry that the other party will steal their customers or employees.

What Do Non-Compete Agreements Contain?

As a condition of a non-compete agreement, the employee, contractor, or business partner must receive something of value in exchange for maintaining confidentiality and privacy of company or trade secrets, or keeping away from entering into deals with competitors.

Non-compete agreements are legally valid if they contain the following:

  • Have the support and agreement by both employee and employer at the time of signing
  • Clearly states the reasons behind the agreement are in place to protect the employer’s best interests
  • Have a reasonable basis for the terms, including the timeline, geography, and scope

Non-compete agreements tend to be a subject of intense scrutiny if a case goes to court. As a general rule of thumb, non-compete agreements should not be used to as a way to limit the employee from employment or impact their earnings.
