At its most basic, a non-compete agreement is exactly what it sounds like: an agreement not to compete. For employers, a non-compete clause can protect business interests when an employee or contractor could potentially share trade secrets or proprietary information. For employees and contractors, entering a non-compete agreement can help secure a job, but it’s important to consider how any restrictions you agree to could impact the future of your career.
