What is a Non-Compete Agreement?


A "Non-Compete Agreement" is a common contractual provision in executive employment agreements, business purchase and sale agreements, franchise agreements and other agreements that restricts (and sometimes prohibits) an individual from working with or for a business competitor or from establishing a competing business. If you signed an agreement with a "non-compete" or "non-competition clause", your ability to work for a competitor or to establish a competing business may be prohibited.
