There is currently a “skills gap” in America and it is the reason many companies are not able to hire the talent they need. The shortage of skilled labor means that it can be easy for an employee to potentially command a higher salary from one of your competitors. You can prevent your employees from working for your competitors, or against you directly, by having them sign a “non-compete” agreement as a term of their employment. A properly drafted agreement can help to protect your business from many future problems. Our Santa Ana attorneys assist with the drafting of non-competition contracts. Contact our office today to speak with a lawyer. We also service Anaheim, Irvine, and the rest of Orange County.
Orange County lawyers drafting non-competition contracts for businesses in Santa Ana, Anaheim, Irvine, and elsewhere
There are many industries in which a company may need to keep their talent from later competing against them. The technology sector often finds itself in this situation as do many other knowledge based fields. Also, there are many businesses in which a company may not wish to have a new competitor within a certain geographic distance. A non-competition agreement can require that, upon leaving employment, one cannot work for a direct competitor or a new company which intends to enter into a similar market. If the employee violates the agreement then it is possible to gain an injunction, which will prevent them from working for the competitor, and to gain financial damages in Court. It is important that your agreement cover numerous scenarios. Hiring an attorney to draft the agreement can ensure that it covers various possibilities and that it is enforceable.
