A non-competition clause is perhaps the most useful to protect the time and money spent developing an employee`s skills. Under the law, a non-compete clause is an agreement that “limits competition for the duration of a restrictive pact.” [3] Non-competitions are the most difficult to impose because an enforceable non-compete clause must meet more requirements than non-disclosure or non-disclosure. In your business, you`ve probably heard of most or all of these agreements. You can even use them all. And often, these agreements will all be part of a document or contract. Thus, these chords can often be put in the same bag. For example, people use “non-competition” to include a “non-demand.” Nevertheless, understanding the differences in these agreements can make it easier to achieve and achieve your business goals. One thing that has in common a non-compete agreement, a non-sponsor and secret agreement, is that the Georgian Covenants Act of 2011 (“law”) applies to all of them. Under the law, a competition restriction agreement (“no competition”), a customer omission agreement[1] (“unsolicited”) and a “non-disclosure” or “confidentiality agreement”) are all types of restrictive agreements. [2] [5] In particular, a non-application is an agreement “for a specified period after the termination of the proceedings, to request or attempt to invite a company to such an employer, including potential active looking customers, with whom the worker has material contact during his employment to provide products or services in competition with those of the employer.” O.C.G.A. 13-8-53 (b). Confidentiality agreements should be a routine for almost all businesses.

Unlike competition or, to a lesser extent, unsolicited agreements on undisclosed agreements are rarely unenforceable on the basis of the language of the agreement – although they are often vague enough to cover non-confidential information. Confidentiality agreements will be difficult to implement because it can be difficult to prove that someone has received confidential information and that the information has remained confidential. This is a non-compete agreement that goes well beyond the normal conditions of a non-compete agreement and it has been strongly recommended to potential staff not to sign the agreement.

Current staff may also be asked to sign a non-competition agreement late. This is a more difficult situation since the employee already has an evaluated item: the job. What else can the employer offer? It sometimes turns out, nothing, as in the following example.
