Below is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Many employers ask employees to sign noncompete agreements promising they will not work for a competitor after leaving their current job. A noncompete agreement won't be enforced if a court find that it is unreasonable. An agreement may be held unreasonable because it: lasts for too long.
(One notable foe of the noncompete agreement is California, where such arrangements are prohibited except in connection with the sale of a business.) Even states that allow these agreements impose some limits on them because the legal system puts a high value on a person's right to earn a living.
Typically, the only way to fight a non-compete agreement is to go to court. If you are an employee (or former employee) who signed such an agreement, this means you must violate the agreement and wait to be sued. It may be that your former employer has never sued another employee to enforce the non-compete agreement.

On average, non-compete cases cost $10,000 or less. Many times an employer is seeking an injunction, which is the employer loses may result in a quicker resolution. Many times the issues are less factual and more legal. Legal issues require less discovery, which can be the most costly part of litigation.
Under California law, it is illegal for an employer to even ask an employee to sign a noncompete agreement. In most other states, a noncompete agreement will be enforced as long as it is limited in time, geographic scope, and effect.
Unless you work in a state that prohibits noncompete agreements, your employer can require you to sign one as a condition of employment. In other words, if you want the job, you will have to sign the noncompete agreement. However, that doesn't mean you should sign whatever is put in front of you.
Depending on the employee's particular profession, employers may include a Non-Compete Clause within or a Non-Compete Agreement along with a Severance Agreement. A former employer must also prove to the court that the Non-Compete Agreement is enforceable and reasonable.

The buyout is a contract that could be included as part of a settlement agreement or release. If you're the employer be thinking about how you are going to enforce the agreement if the employee fails to pay. The buyout won't make sense in every situation, but it is something to consider.
Even though a non-compete agreement can still be enforced when you are fired, you could potentially get out of it if the employer breaches your contract. You can also get out of the agreement if the employer fired you for a reason that is not just or fair.
As a practical matter this means that in all but a very few and unusual types of situations, noncompete agreements are not enforceable in California.

In contrast, in many industries, a Non-Compete with a duration of 6-months will be considered reasonable, and therefore enforceable. The general rule is that the duration of the agreement should not exceed the time reasonably necessary to protect the employer's legitimate business interests.
A non-compete agreement is a contract between an employee and employer. A non-compete prohibits an employee from engaging in a business that competes with his/her current employer's business. While an employer cannot require you to sign a non-compete, they may terminate, or choose not to hire you if you refuse to sign.
