What Happens If I Violate The Non-Compete in My Employment Contract?
Assuming that you were a valuable employee with information and access to clients, customer lists and business know how, chances are that your employer will attempt to restrain you from working for a competitor or establishing a competing business. Lawsuits involving employment non-competes are typically commenced in New York and New Jersey by the filing of an emergency motion known as an "order to show cause" where your employer will seek a preliminary injunction and temporary restraints. Every case is different but when it comes to employment non-competes, there are defenses that will be available to you.
