Are you starting a new job and need an employment contract and non-compete clause reviewed for your own legal protection? Does your restrictive covenant limit your ability to get a new job or work in a particular area? Is your non-compete agreement too broad in terms of geography, time frame, future positions or other terms? Have you received a demand letter from your former employer to stop working? Smith Eibeler, LLC are experienced employment litigators who can help you effectively address such matters.
When you start a new job, especially in a corporation or closely held business involving technology, trade secrets or other trademarked information, you may need to sign an employment contract. These contracts are often full of complicated legal language, and they often include non-competition and non solicitation clauses. This is a restrictive covenant, which means that you may be restricted in your future employment opportunities.
