You have always been able to compete fairly and succeed. That’s the game. When someone cheats by poaching a key employee and using her to sell to all of your customers, that’s unfair. If you have a proper non-compete and non-solicitation agreement in place with your employees, you may be able to sue and stop this from happening, or at least, hold those responsible for breaking and interfering with your non-compete agreements. Once the damage starts, it only multiplies—usually exponentially.

Non-Compete Agreements and Business Sales
It is one thing if your non-compete agreement is with an employee, but Minnesota Courts analyze these agreements with a different legal standard than if they are part of an agreement that involved the sale or purchase of a business. Make sure you apply the proper standard when suing over your non-compete agreement, negotiating the terms of one or trying to decide how enforceable it will be in the future.
- Non-compete agreements: When employers share ideas and business practices with employees, partners and others, a non-compete agreement helps make sure that these people do not impact the employer's bottom line by working for the competition. By law, non-compete agreements must be limited in scope, duration, and geography in order to be enforceable.
- Non-solicitation agreements: Customers and employees are a business's biggest assets. Non-solicitation agreements limit the contact that a former employee can have with a business's existing customers and employees. When an employee signs a non-solicitation agreement, he or she agrees not to take valuable customers or other employees along when leaving the business.
