Non solicitation / Noncompete Clauses

Background Shape/Fill/Blue Shaded


Has your employer asked you to sign a nonsolicitation or noncompete agreement? Have you received a cease and desist letter from your former employer? When you move from one position to the next, you may have questions about the exact limitations on your new business based on any agreement you signed with a former employer.

These clauses are restrictive covenants with obligations to be adhered to by law; however, these clauses can be unreasonable and/or unlawful.

If you are in sales, or if you were a manager or executive with your former employer, you are more likely to have signed such a clause. Sometimes, however, employers may try to force these clauses upon people they should not in an effort to gain advantage.

At Peter A. McSherry Employment Lawyers, I can help you understand the legal agreement you have signed, advise you on ways to legally work around the clause, define exactly what you are not allowed to do, and evaluate whether the clause is valid. Since 1997, I have been working on employment law in Ontario exclusively. My Guelph law practise is geared toward catering to your needs as an employee and helping you reach your objectives.
