Many employees, especially at the executive level, are required to sign noncompetition agreements, also called noncompete agreements or covenants not to compete. These contracts typically provide protection for the employer by restricting an employee's actions, should the employee leave the company. While noncompete agreements are necessary, sometimes they are too restrictive, leaving someone unable to work in his or her field.

At The Klein Law Group, P.C., we review employment agreements and contracts and work to protect our clients' rights.
