Summary

  • Restrictive covenants are enforceable in Indiana if they are necessary to protect an employer's legitimate interest, if the covenants are reasonable, not unduly restrictive to an employee, and not contrary to the public interest. See Restrictive Covenants.
  • Indiana has adopted a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and enforces protection of proprietary information. See Trade Secrets.
