An Overview of Non-Compete Agreements and Non-Solicit Provisions

1h 33m

Created on June 12, 2017




In this program, employment attorney Jonathan Cooper provides an overview of the legal landscape concerning non-compete agreements. Over the last few years, a number of states, and even the White House, have weighed in on non-compete and non-solicit provisions, staking claims that overzealous employers have overreached by trying to hold low-income employees to restrictive covenants, and should therefore be banned. As a result, many employers-and employees-have been left wondering whether existing agreements are enforceable, and if so, to what extent a court will be willing to enforce that agreement.
