Sample Non-Compete Agreement

When an employee leaves your business, is he or she taking things along that you would rather not give up? Is the employee going to open up in competition with you, or try to steal your customers, or employ secret processes that are a source of your competitive advantage? Obviously, no employer wants to lose an employee under those circumstances.

One way to avoid this is to enter into agreements with your employees that restrict their rights to compete with you. You can make such an agreement a condition of employment, if you wish.

The file you can download below provides an example of a non-compete agreement/clause to be added to your employees’ contracts should your business require it. You may adapt it to match your business specific needs. It is recommended to ask for a lawyer/expert’s advice.
