Frequently Asked Questions

No, a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and a non-compete agreement are not the same.  An NDA is a legally binding contract between two parties wherein one party agrees not to disclose confidential information.  A non-compete agreement is a legally binding contract between an employer and employee wherein the employee agrees not to work for a competitor or start their own business in competition with the employer.

Some non-compete clauses may restrict a former employee from starting a business or working for a competitor for a specified time period or geographical location. A non-compete clause example might read: "The Employee agrees not to work for a competitor of the Company or start their own business in competition with the Company for a period of two years after leaving the Company."

When writing a non-compete agreement, the key is to strike a balance between protecting your business and ensuring your employees are able to pursue their own career goals justly. Here are a few tips to help you customize your non-compete agreement template.

Keep it reasonable.

Write a reasonable non-compete agreement that will hold up in court. For example, you can't prohibit your employees from working in their chosen field. Instead, focus on protecting your business's specific interests. For example, if you have a unique product or service, a non-compete clause can prohibit your employees from working for a competitor that offers a similar product or service.

Make it clear.

A non-compete agreement should be straight and to the point. Clear language will ensure that your employees know exactly what they're signing to, and that there's no ambiguity about the terms of the agreement.

Limit the duration.

A non-compete agreement should only last for as long as necessary to protect your business interests. For most businesses, a non-compete contract period is 1 to 2 years.

Geographical restrictions.

For example, if you have customers in a specific region, you might want to include a clause that prohibits your employees from working for a competitor in that region. However, several states limit restrictions to geographical areas where employees have worked. Be sure to check your state laws. 

Specify Scope.

You'll need to specify what activities are prohibited under the agreement. For example, you might want to include a clause that prohibits your employees from soliciting your customers or using your confidential information.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question—the length of a non-compete agreement will vary depending on the industry, the role of an employee or independent contractor, and other factors like state laws. However, as a general rule of thumb, a non-compete agreement can be between 1 and 5 years.
