Non-Compete Agreements

Non-compete agreements are treated differently from regular contracts.  Unlike most contracts for employment, the non-compete agreement has the effect of inhibiting commerce.  Public policy favors people having jobs and being productive.  As a result, a non-compete agreement has to be properly limited geographically, temporally (length of time of the non-compete), limited by industry and limited to a legitimate interest of the company.  However, even if the non-compete meets all of these requirements, enforceability is still questionable because decisions by Arkansas courts have been inconsistent and cases are decided on a case by case basis.  The attorneys at the Wilkinson Law Firm have experience drafting non-compete agreements for employers and litigating non-compete agreements on behalf of employers and employees.  If you are facing a non-compete or need one, please call us.
