Non-compete Agreements legally bind an employee from competing with another employer for a period of time after their employment terminates. They are typically used when an employer has proprietary information or materials that could cause issues if their competition gets the information.
Non-competes need to be properly written or they may not be held up in court. Use caution when considering them and I highly recommend seeking counsel when including them in your employment packages.
Non-Disclosure Agreements protect confidential information but do not limit employment opportunities.
