Employment Contracts and Non-Compete Agreements

Employment contracts and non-competition or non-solicitation agreements are frequently signed but often not fully understood. Employment contracts, non-competition agreements and non-disclosure agreements are generally found in the same document, but serve different purposes. For over three decades, the attorneys at Henrichsen Law Group has provided legal advice to various professionals and executives in navigating contract negotiations and disputes.

Employment contracts set forth the mutual obligations of the parties in the employment relationship. These obligations can include non-competition agreements and nondisclosure agreements. They will also generally include provisions related to salary, stock options, termination of employment and severance packages, benefits, and other employment-related issues.

Non-competition agreements seek to limit the future employment of company employees. These agreements are governed largely by state law. Many non-competition agreements are invalidated or restricted in geographic scope or duration for being overly broad and restrictive. However, other non-competition agreements are enforced, and they must be taken seriously. As a general rule, absent an agreement, there is no law restricting an employee’s right to future employment.

If you are negotiating an employment agreement, we can help guide you through the process to make sure that you are protecting your future and career. If you are in a dispute over your current employment agreement or need advice in determining the enforceability of your employment agreement, we can assist with advising on different options and legal strategies. Contact Henrichsen Law Group, P.L.L.C. for a consultation and contract review to ensure that you are adequately advised on all of your legal rights and obligations.
