Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Agreements
Fair competition is a natural and expected part of doing business. Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements are two specialized types of contracts or restrictive covenants that can be entered into between an employer and employee. A non-competition agreement precludes a former employee from competing against a former employer. A non-solicitation agreement prevents an employee from approaching or soliciting customers or employees. While generally disfavored in Virginia, courts may enforce such agreements if they are narrowly tailored to protecting the employer without unnecessarily restricting the former employee’s ability to earn a living, and the agreement does not violate public policy. Given their complexity, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements can give rise to complex and demanding litigation.
