Non-solicitation clauses, sometimes called “non-solicit agreements”, within an employee’s signed employment contract helps provide protection and attempts to prohibit a departing employee from actively soliciting clients and colleagues from their former employers for a fixed period of time.

Given that Non-Solicitation Covenants are preferred by courts to Non-Competition Covenants, unless the employer has a valid reason for the latter, Non-Solicitation Covenants are incorporated into employment agreements to try to diminish potential harm from departing employees leaving employment and then competing with their former employer by soliciting its customers, suppliers or employees. The MacDonald & Associates team of employment lawyers excels in creating and reviewing these clauses to ensure strength and enforceability in a court of law.
