Is a Non-Compete Agreement Worth the Paper It Is Written On?

When it comes to the tow business, the answer is…it depends. I would say as a general rule, courts disfavor “restrictive covenants” in the workplace. A restrictive covenant is, by definition, something that restricts another from doing something. A covenant not to compete is one example of a restrictive covenant. Typically, they are introduced at the inception of one’s employment and, as a condition of accepting employment, the prospective employee agrees to a number of post-employment conditions, such as non-competing with the company, not soliciting the company’s customers, and otherwise not using the customer’s confidential information.
