Our NJ Non-Compete Lawyers can assist you with your non-compete agreement.
Have you been offered a non-compete agreement? Are you looking to determine whether your non-compete agreement is enforceable in New Jersey? If so, our employment attorneys can assist you with the review, negotiation, revision or legal advice regarding your non-compete agreement. We have reviewed and negotiated hundreds of New Jersey non-compete agreements.
Non-compete agreements in New Jersey are often times referred to as restrictive covenants. The law requires that non-compete agreements be limited in geographic scope, duration and protects the legitimate interests of the company. The court may not enforce a non-compete agreement if it does not meet this criteria. Our attorneys can meet with you to discuss your specific needs regarding your non-compete agreement and determine whether we believe that it would be enforceable in a court of law in New Jersey. We will also discuss your options regarding how to proceed with the non-compete. For example, you may have been offered a job to go and work for another company. Your current employer required that you sign a non-compete when you began working for them. You may be able to negotiate with your employer prior to leaving the company to reduce the non-compete. If that does not work, you could file a declaratory judgment action with the Court to determine that the non-compete agreement is not enforceable.
Your non-compete agreement could prevent you from working in your field for two years. It is essential to try and negotiate your non-compete agreement before, during or after your employment. It is one of the most burdensome documents that employees sign and has a major impact on your ability to earn a living and support your family.
