Contracts, Noncompetes and Severance Packages

Did you sign an agreement preventing you from working for a competitor, or from using customer or technical knowledge for your benefit or for the benefit of another company after you have left employment? Whether a court will enforce an agreement that restricts what you can do after you leave employment may likely be determined by the specific facts of case. Was the agreement signed when you began employment or after you already started? Have you been paid the wages you were promised in exchange for signing the agreement not to compete? The way your employer treated you during your employment and whether you resigned or were fired can make a significant difference.
