Protecting Your Right To Work When Non-competes Come Into Play
Many companies hiring mid-level and upper-level managers and executives
include a non-compete clause in their employment contracts. The terms
of a non-compete agreement can vary and are usually based on the industry,
geography and time. For example, a non-compete agreement may bar a retail
corporation's CEO from taking another executive-level position with
a company in the retail industry in the same region for two years after
leaving the company.
At Vishnick McGovern Milizio LLP, we represent employees involved in disputes
over non-compete agreements. You have a right to make a living. When an
over-restrictive non-compete agreement prevents you from doing that, speak

Free markets value open competition for the best talent. If you believe
a non-compete agreement was unfair or unreasonable, seek legal advice.
Our lawyers are familiar with the discovery-intensive nature of these claims,
and we are experienced in documenting complex cases. The employer will
often allege a breach of fiduciary relationship or a breach of loyalty.
In reality, the non-compete clause may have been too restrictive in the

against the clause.
