Benefits of a Non-Compete Agreement
Every year, businesses across the U.S. spend billions of dollars training new employees. It would be a shame if employees used this training (or the confidential information acquired during employment) to compete against the employer after they leave. This is why most businesses have new hires sign a non-compete agreement. Non-compete agreements are enforced by the courts, but usually have to be reasonable in terms of geographic location and time frame.
