Noncompete Contract Clause

Author: Beth C. Rogers, Law Offices of Beth C. Rogers, LLC

When to Use This Clause

A Noncompete Contract Clause or Covenant should be included in employment contracts signed by all new employees (or in severance agreements with departing employees). This provision ensures that the employee agrees not to pursue a similar profession or trade in competition against the employer, even after the employee has stopped working for the employer.
