Non-Compete Clause

A non-compete agreement is a legal clause or agreement in a contract that states an employee must agree not to work for competitor companies or create a new competitor company within a certain amount of time after employment is terminated. These agreements also prohibit the employee from sharing proprietary secrets or information to other parties during or after employment. This is governed by state law and those required to sign the agreement may include employees, contractors, and consultants.
