Who benefits from the agreement NOT to compete in this area for two years? The employee? I don't think so. The employer? YESSIR. The employer gets the benefit of the employee's work. The employer pays for that. That is fair. The employer also gets an agreement not to compete with him for some period of time after termination of employment. Does the employer pay for that? Nope, not one penny. That is grossly unfair. Wait! The employee agreed to it. That was before he read this article. Is this agreement enforceable in court?
|No non compete clause in your employment contract|
Just say NO to non compete clauses. There is no upside for the employee. It may be ten years later when a competitor offers you a opportunity as a sales manager. Your old employer gets a court order stopping you from working in your field in his town.
I promise that you will feel violated. You are. Do not let this happen to you. Learn from my mistakes, not your own. Just say no to non compete clauses. www.firstrealestateschool.com
