Representing Employers In Enforcing Agreements
If you are an employer needing representation enforcing a confidentiality, non-compete or non-solicitation agreement, our attorneys can represent you. Enforcing a non-compete, non-solicitation or confidentiality agreement in New Jersey requires a keen knowledge of this side of the law. Our attorneys will take the time to review your case and ensure that you meet the legal standards.
For an agreement to be enforceable, New Jersey law requires that the agreement:
- Legitimately protects the interests of the employer
- Does not place an undue burden on the employee
- Is not harmful to the public
For example, if it is apparent that the sole reason behind a non-compete is to prevent competition, a court is unlikely to enforce the agreement. Valid reasons for a non-compete agreement include protecting trade secrets, customer relationships and other confidential information. The scope of the agreement and its restrictions must also be reasonable under the law.
Challenging Unfair Agreements And Restrictions For Employees
Some non-compete agreements are excessive and unreasonable in scope. Yet, an effort to enforce them can have various consequences for the disadvantaged party. At Biebelberg & Martin, LLC, we will help you challenge unfair agreements to protect your career.
New Jersey courts understand and respect everyone’s right to work in his or her chosen field. At Biebelberg & Martin, LLC, we are experienced at challenging oppressive noncompete agreements.
