California Lawyers Help Employees Evaluate Noncompete Agreements

San Diego attorneys clarify rights and restrictions when a job ends

Companies often require employees to sign documents agreeing not to work for a competing firm. During the term of one’s employment, it is appropriate for a worker to avoid contact with a competitor. However, when these agreements, or covenants, extend beyond their departure, a former employee might be unfairly and unlawfully restricted from earning a living in their chosen field. At Kased Law Group, we provide authoritative legal advice whether you previously executed a noncompete agreement or you’ve just been presented one to review.

Comprehensive counsel on California laws concerning noncompete covenants

States take different approaches to noncompete agreements, so it is important that you get personalized advice. Our San Diego attorneys will analyze the document to tell you what terms, if any, are enforceable. In states where post-employment covenants are enforceable, the restrictions usually must be reasonable. Particular terms at issue can include:

  • Defining what types of businesses can be considered as competitive
  • Establishing a geographic area within which firms might be affected by the agreement
  • How long restrictions can remain in effect
  • Consideration you will receive for executing a noncompete agreement
  • Provisions relating to proprietary information
  • Limits on working with former customers or clients after moving to a new job

Even if you signed an agreement, there is a strong likelihood that all of its terms might not be enforceable. Our lawyers can help you seek a fairer arrangement.

Detailed advice to help protect your ability to earn a living

It can be intimidating to confront a current or former employer about onerous noncompete covenants. We will arm you with the legal knowledge you need to safeguard your rights. Whether you’re a new employee or looking to start a new job, our attorneys will not allow you to be mistreated.
