Podcast: What Employers Need to Know about Non-Compete Agreements
As issues of covenants or agreements to not compete become increasingly prevalent in employer/employee relationships, attorney Calvin Woo discusses what employers need to know about non-compete agreements in this Verrill Voices podcast. As Calvin explains at the start of the podcast, non-compete agreements are a form of restrictive covenants which certain employers require of their employees.
Historically, non-compete agreements were disfavored by courts, but in the 80's and 90's, more courts began to uphold them, realizing how they could serve legitimate business interest. In this podcast, Calvin outlines when they are enforceable and how courts react when non-competes are contested by employees.
