Rights of Employees
Wyckoff, New Jersey Non-Compete Agreement Lawyers
Many companies require employees to a sign non-compete agreements and other similar restrictive covenants before hiring them, or as a condition to keeping their jobs, receiving a promotion, or accepting a stock or stock option grant. These agreements require you to sign away or limit your right to work for a competing company after you leave your current job.
Non-compete agreements can be enforceable in New Jersey and New York as long as they are not unreasonable. However, they also can severely restrict your ability to find your next job, and can limit your leverage when you try to negotiate a raise or a promotion with your current employer.New Jersey Non-Compete Attorneys Who Represent Employees
