Non Compete Agreements—What you Need to Know:
For an employee who is being asked to sign a non-compete agreement, it is advised that you are absolutely certain you understand the terms of the agreement before
signing. For an employee who has already signed a non-compete agreement and is unable to work due to its boundaries, you may have options
if, for example, the terms of the signed non-compete agreement are too general or broad.
I’ve Been Asked to Sign a Michigan Non-Compete Agreement. What Do I Need to Know About Michigan Non-Compete Law?
Michigan courts DO enforce well-drafted agreements, so it’s imperative that you understand the boundaries and restrictions that will be enforced in the non-compete agreement. If it’s unclear, hiring an attorney to review and explain the terms is a good up-front investment to prevent a more costly non-compete litigation down the road. If the terms are deemed unreasonable, you may have the option to negotiate.
