Understanding What A Noncompete Agreement Means For You
Is a noncompete agreement preventing you from accepting another job or starting a business? Are you being sued for violating a noncompete agreement? Are you an employer who wants to enforce a noncompete agreement your employee signed?
I am Stephen Roger Bosin, an experienced employment law attorney who has drafted, reviewed, enforced, opposed and negotiated noncompete agreements for clients in Bergen County and throughout New Jersey.
Not Just For Executives
Noncompete agreements are not just for executives. Today, nearly every employee is bound by a noncompete agreement. Employers often require their employees to sign them as a condition of their employment.
A noncompete agreement is a type of restrictive covenant. It typically prevents an employee from working for a firm’s direct competitors within a certain geographic region for a specific period of time after leaving the company.
Reviewing Agreements, Advising Clients
I frequently review noncompete agreements for employees who are considering leaving a job for another opportunity. I advise clients of what they may or may not do according to the terms of the agreement. I will also outline their legal options.
In many cases, it is best to retain an employment law attorney to negotiate an acceptable departure from the agreement. Sometimes, these agreements are overbroad and legally unenforceable. I will work to negotiate a fair agreement that is in my client’s best interest.
