Employment, Non-Disclosure and Non-Compete Litigation

Employment litigation lawyers specialize in the many aspects related to participating as a member of the workforce. It is an exceptionally broad area of law. Traditional employment law does not include the unique collective bargaining negotiation process that comes from labor laws (e.g., teacher negotiations and other union negotiations). From employment contracts, using non-disclosure or non-compete clauses, to termination concerns, employment litigators assist you in a multitude of ways.

Frequently utilized in employment contracts in specialized fields, a non-compete clause is when the employee agrees not to enter in to a similar professional contract with another business (or begin their own business) in competition with the current employer. For this promise, the employer is provided some additional consideration in the contract (e.g., higher pay). non-complete clauses are premised on the idea that upon resignation or termination of employment, the employee holds valuable knowledge (trade secrets, marketing strategies, etc.) and the contract prevents them from using this in a competitive way against the employer. There are typically time limits on non-compete clauses.

A non-disclosure agreement provides that the employee is prevented from sharing confidential information, knowledge, or material with a third party. Non-disclosure agreements protect non-public business materials. They are typically used when two groups are doing business together and need to share information for the purpose of a special project – thus there is a mutual benefit – but other competitors should not have access. They may also be used in fields where individuals are privy to sensitive information about people or companies.

If you need assistance with these, or other areas of employment, contact an employment litigation lawyer.
