Is Your Business Protected?

Your employees are investments - how secure are they?

Without having the proper protections in place, your business could be exposed. In North Carolina, non-compete agreements and non-solicitation agreements are two tools you can use to protect your company. However, there are a lot of guidelines you need to follow to make sure the agreements will hold up in a court of law.

Two Ways to Protect Your Business
  1. A non-compete limits the employee’s ability to compete with the employer for a set period of time after an employee exits the company. This can shield your business from losing trade secrets, operational knowledge, and other vital information to competitors.
  2. Similarly, a non-solicitation agreement restricts an employee’s ability to solicit an employer’s customers for a set period of time after employment ends. Essentially, this keeps former employees from poaching your customers.
