Non-Compete Clauses

Covenants not to compete, also known as non-compete clauses, may restrict employees from leaving their employer and immediately going to work for a competitor across town or in the area. Non-compete agreements in Texas, however, face scrutiny from the courts because of their restraint-of-trade implications.

Given this scrutiny, employers must carefully draft such agreements so as to ensure they are enforceable and comply with all relevant non-compete laws. After all, many employees have access to trade secrets, confidential information, and customer lists, and often receive specialized training that could give competitors an unfair advantage in the marketplace.
