The basics of non-compete agreements

Non-compete agreements are a staple in businesses in many states, including Georgia. You may be considering drafting these for your employees as well. We here at Kaufman & Forman, P.C., wish to help you understand how non-compete agreements work under current state law and what they are at a ground level.

Under the current business laws of Georgia, you as an employer actually have a bit more wiggle room in regard to your non-compete contract drafts. Employers were given the ability to make broader agreements, which can help you out if you are trying to combat the possibility of workers leaving to other jobs and taking important business information with them.

However, you should be aware of the fact that all non-compete agreements come with hitches and hang-ups that you will need to handle as they appear. You may need to make negotiations. You will need to come up with a good way of enforcing the agreements that your employees sign. It will be a lot of work to manage any sort of non-compete contract, especially when you take into consideration the fact that laws for these agreements differ from state to state. You may even need to prepare to get the courts involved.

On a whole, you should draft non-compete agreements professionally and potentially with legal aid to make sure they are airtight. But there is always room for something to go awry, and you should have backup plans for handling situations where things don’t go exactly as you had hoped. To read more about non-compete agreements and how to use them to better your business, you can stop by our web page.
