Defining Non-Compete Agreements and Non-Solicitation Agreements in Chicago
It has been said that knowledge is half of the battle. You may not think of the workplace in military terms, but many employees find themselves in situations that feel like war. One of the best defenses against workplace issues is knowledge. Attorney Ross J. Peters has dedicated over 18 years of his life to the study and enforcement of employment law in Illinois. He is committed to educating clients and protecting their rights.
If you are planning to sign a non-compete agreement, you should understand the terms. Essentially, it is an agreement that you will not compete with your employer following termination. This competition usually has a time period associated. Illinois rulings are setting precedents making it tougher for employers to enforce restrictive agreements when they do not provide acceptable consideration for the employee. Consideration refers to any provision for an employee in exchange for agreeing not to compete.
Sometimes non-compete agreements are coupled with a non-solicitation agreement, but such an agreement may also stand alone. A non-solicitation agreement demands that a former or exiting employee refrains from actions such as the following:
- Pursuing or asking employees at the company to work for another employer
- Trying to establish business with the former company’s clients
- Creating business relationships with the former company’s vendors
At the heart of the matter is an employee’s livelihood and ability to find new employment after termination. Attorney Ross J. Peters wants to protect your right to earn a living. He will provide counsel or representation in your non-compete agreement or non-solicitation agreement matter to ensure you are being treated fairly.
