Minnesota Non-Compete Agreements Attorney

Non-Compete Agreements

Employees should know that if they are asked to sign an employment agreement as a condition of employment, they are protected by laws. Employees may consider if their employer should provide compensation in some form in exchange for agreeing to the employment agreement. For example, if the employer asks you not to work for a competing employer for a certain number of years after leaving the employer, then that may restrict an employee’s earnings. Any employment agreement that the courts deem unreasonable are unenforceable.

An agreement that violates a law, extends too far after employment has been terminated, covers too large a geographic area in terms of its restrictions, has the intent to harm an employer’s competitors, or is unnecessary as a business requirement, are all terms that are unenforceable.

Employers often ask for non-disclosure or confidentiality clauses in an employment agreement. Under certain conditions, these clauses may not be enforceable. For example, an employer cannot prevent an employee from sharing information with future employers that was obtained independently from the original employer. Also an employer may not prevent an employee from reporting illegal acts by an employer. Confidentiality clauses in employment agreements may only restrict the employee from disclosing information obtained while working for the employer.
