Non-Compete Agreement Review & Negotiation Attorneys
What is A Non-Compete Agreement or Contract?
A non-compete agreement or contract is designed to prevent an employee from competing with a former employer. Wisconsin law and Wisconsin courts favor the mobility of workers. However, many employers may seek a non-compete agreement or contract that restricts an individual from taking certain actions after the employment relationship ends.
In Wisconsin, in order for a non-compete agreement to be valid, legal, and enforceable, it must:
- Be necessary for the protection of the employer
- Have a reasonable time restriction
- Have a reasonable territorial limit
- Not be harsh or oppressive to the employee
- Not contradict public policy
