Non-Compete Clauses and Restrictive Covenants
Helping Employees in Rochester Understand Restrictions in Employment Contracts
Many employers want to protect their current employees and business operations when an employee leaves the company. An ex-employee working for a competitor can lead to that employee bringing information and business to that competitor.
Restrictive covenants and non-complete clauses are provisions in employment contracts. The employee agrees that if they should leave the employment at some later date, they will not work or engage in certain defined types of employment for a certain period of time.
Such clauses can also require an employee not to contact or solicit business from the employer's customers or employees. Employees might also not be able to solicit other employees after leaving their job or to even service customers or clients from the employer.

How The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. Can Provide Assistance
The terms of a non-compete clause or a restrictive covenant must be specifically worded; they cannot be too broad in the geographical coverage and the specified time period must be of a reasonable duration, both of which are to be construed by a court. You may have the right to work as you choose if the contract is not drafted correctly.
Many times, the language in employment contracts is weak or vague, as employers may have used standard one-size-fits-all or pre-printed contract templates, or did not have the resources to hire attorneys to draft their employment contracts tailored to their particular situation.
