agreements are generaly looked upon disfavorably in Pennsylvania, but are still enforceable. On November 27, 2017 a
House Bill 1938 was introduced in the Pensylvania House which, if passed and signed into law, would ban most non-compete agreements entered
into after the effective date of the law, while providing certain protections to employees who signed non-compete agreements
prior to the effective date of the law. However, that HB 1938 in not currently the law.
So how do
you protect yourself now? Will a non-compete prevent you from working if you voluntarily quit? What if you are
discharged? What if the discharge is itself unlawful? Will accepting a new job violate the terms of the non-compete?
What are your options?
Obviously, the best time to have a non-compete agreement, or any contract, reviewed
is prior to signing. If you are presented with a non-compete agreement by an employer during employment, or by a prospective
employer at hire, you should review it carefully and make sure you understand all of the terms prior to signing.
If you have any questions you should contact an experienced employment law attorney.
Non-compete agreement questions arise in a variety of ways, including:
- When presented
at hire as a condition of employment
- As a new "policy" implemented during employment that employees are
asked to sign
- In considering subsequent offers of employment
- Upon notice from a former employer alleging
breach or violation of a previously executed non-compete
Irrespective of how the issue presents itself, it is
important to seek legal counsel to protect yourself.
Have you been presented with a non-compete agreement by a current or prospective employer?
Have you received notice from a former employer alleging violation
of a previously executed non-compete?
