Noncompete Agreements | Attorneys In Weston For Review And Litigation
It has become extremely common for companies to require high-level executives, sales and technology professionals, and other workers to sign noncompete agreements — sometimes called “covenants not to compete” — as a condition of employment. Many sign these contracts without fully understanding their meaning and restrictions in practical terms. In reality, not all noncompete agreements are enforceable by law.
