Schuylkill County Noncompete and Nondisclosure Agreements

As an employee, you most likely signed an employment contract that contained a non-compete clause or an entirely separate non-compete contract. These documents are designed to hinder employees from leaving a company to start their own ventures. Employers often want to utilize these contracts to protect trade secrets as well.

At Fanelli, Evans & Patel, P.C., we help employees who feel as though their non-compete clauses are too broad and span too wide an area. We also assist clients in the negotiation of their non-compete agreements. If you need help with your contract, do not hesitate to reach out to our Pennsylvania employment law firm.

A Pottsville Attorney Helping Individuals With Non-compete Issues

As skilled employment law attorneys, we are well-aware that Pennsylvania courts do not favor non-compete agreements. In certain situations, these agreements are valid and will hold up. But there are many circumstances in which an agreement not to compete is unenforceable. Some of these reasons include:

  • The geography covered is too broad.
  • The scope covers too many areas of employment.
  • You were let go through no fault of your own.
  • The court determines the contract to be unreasonable.

No matter what concerns you have regarding your non-compete agreement, our attorneys will stand by your side, protecting your rights.

We also assist individuals who are in the middle of contract negotiations and need advice on what to do regarding their agreements not to compete and other clauses, including nondisclosure terms. Before signing anything, allow us to review your contract and put you in a stronger position.
