Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Disputes

Businesses may require employees and contractors to sign non-competition and non-solicitation clauses intended to restrict their ability to do certain work. These clauses are considered restraints on trade, and generally very closely scrutinized in the workplace context. For these covenants to be valid, certain strict conditions must be met. Otherwise, a non-competition or non-solicitation clause may be considered invalid.

Employers need to ensure their non-competition and non-solicitation covenants are properly drafted, for these types of clauses to be valid. This will allow employers to have more of a peace of mind when it comes to safeguarding the interests and property they are seeking to protect.

Employees, on the flip side, need to fully understand what it is they are being asked to agree to, how that impacts their ability to perform other work, and what they need to be watching out for.
