Ct Ban Non Solicitation Agreements

Some agreements define certain cities or states or regions where the employer operates. Others indicate a restriction radius, for example.B. “within 50 miles of Hartford.” In both cases, an overshoot can tip the agreement, even if the employee signs it voluntarily. If the 50-mile radius covers three cities where you are not doing business or probably are not going to do business, the agreement may be void. Bhandary-Alexander remembered one of his customers, who was a good employee in a fast-food restaurant, and another tried to lure him away, but in a variation on this subject, the two companies had signed agreements not to poach the employees of the other. The worker then changed her career completely and became a health aide. If the employer is not competitive, we always check whether the employer imposes these agreements consistently. The role of the employer is to show that it applies the agreement in a consistent way to all. But if some workers withdraw with non-compete agreements and create a competitive hedge fund in competition with their former employer, such as Bridgewater Associates, the courts will refuse to protect the employer. Go to the Connecticut Superior Court website and look for actions by employers to prosecute employees. Also ask around and see if other employees who left received bad letters of omission and exit when they were going to work for a competitor. If they have not been the subject of a cease and desecondance action, this information becomes your leverage to argue that your non-competition agreement is legally unenforceable.

The main argument we always use is that the employee never intended to enter into the contract, so there was no legal reflection or glue to you to the contract. This is a fundamental issue of the treaty. You must make an affidavit stating when you received the agreement, have little, if ever had time to verify it, have not consulted any lawyer, you have not been able to negotiate the agreement and the employer has conditioned your work unless you sign the agreement. We send routine sworn insurance to the employer with a very detailed legal argument. Employers forget about it or try to retaliate with a letter of omission, provided you are going to work for a competitive employer. Here, too, in Connecticut, we will take action against the employer to declare the insolvency agreement illegal and unenforceable.

In recent years, employers in Connecticut and elsewhere have seen a growing trend of forcing low-wage workers to sign non-compete contracts. These agreements restrict the ability of workers to move to similar activities in neighbouring geographical areas. Finally, there was at least one case in New York where it was found that, in general, restrictive agreements are not applied in employment contracts when the worker has been dismissed without cause (this rule goes beyond the context of the benefit plan). But the case, which has not been decided by New York`s highest court, is so far an outlier. For this reason, in New York, the general rule of imposing restrictive agreements in employment contracts (i.e. outside the context of the “workers` doctrine of choice”) is still applied when they are “reasonable,” even if the worker has been dismissed for no reason. At first glance, such agreements seem very useful. The sudden loss of a major seller, for example, often creates a triple shame. First, an experienced member of the sales team has disappeared, along with an in-depth knowledge of your business, products, pricing policies and customers.
