Summary

  • Maryland law will enforce noncompete agreements or restrictive covenants that are reasonable in duration and scope and necessary to protect the employer's business interests. See Noncompete Agreements.
  • Maryland law recognizes constructive discharge claims and examines whether the employer has deliberately caused the employee's working conditions to become so intolerable that a reasonable person in the employee's place would feel compelled to resign. See Constructive Discharge.
