Executive employee agreements typically include post-employment restrictive covenants against competition, solicitation, or the former employee’s use of trade secrets and other confidential information.
In Georgia, a post-employment non-compete provision in an employment agreement must balance the employee’s right to earn a living and his ability to determine with certainty the prohibited territory with the employer’s interest in customer relationships created or furthered by its former employee on its behalf and its right to protect itself from the former employee’s possible unfair appropriation of contacts developed while working for the employer.
Different rules of law apply to different types of restrictive covenants, and the laws vary from state to state. The Atlanta Copeland Law Firm has unlimited electronic access to all the statutes and published case law that governs the interpretation and enforcement of non-compete agreements and employment agreements.
