When an employer provides you with a contract, whether it is for employment, a severance agreement, or a non-compete agreement, you need to know the repercussions of signing that agreement. The Parzivand “Parz” Law Firm can help. Hessam Parzivand has reviewed severance agreements, employment agreements, and non-competes for many employees to ensure they know the implications of the document they are considering signing or have signed.
Non-Compete Agreement Review
Myth: Non-Compete Agreements Are Generally Unenforceable
Reality: You Need To Consult An Attorney To See If Your Non-Compete Agreement Prevents You From Taking A Job You Are Considering
It is true that non-competes were not generally enforceable, but the law has rapidly changed to make non-compete agreements more enforceable. As a result, it is best to consult with a lawyer, before you sign a non-compete agreement. Engaging in litigation involving a non-compete is extremely expensive.
If you have already signed a non-compete and are pursuing another job that may violate your non-compete agreement, you also need to consult an attorney to ensure that you know what you can and cannot legally do under your agreement.
