A non-compete agreement is a contract between an employer and an employee in which the employee agrees not to compete with the employer during or after the employment relationship. The non-compete agreement may be part of an employment contract or it may be a separate agreement. The agreement typically contains provisions specifying the geographic area in which the employee will not compete, the length of time the agreement will be in effect, and the type of businesses or activities that are included in the non-competition covenant.

Non-compete agreements can also protect the employer's confidential information and trade secrets. The employer wants to make sure the employee cannot use the employer's information or relationships to start a competing business.
A non-compete agreement may be enforceable if it is reasonable in geographic scope, duration, and line of business. A court will also consider whether the non-compete agreement is necessary to protect the employer's legitimate business interests. An agreement that is too restrictive may be unenforceable.
The employee should make sure they understand the terms of the agreement before signing it. The employee should also consult with an attorney to make sure the agreement is enforceable and to understand the implications of signing the agreement.
