Protecting Your Right To Work When Noncompetes Come Into Play

Many companies hiring mid-level and upper-level managers and executives include a noncompete clause in their employment contracts. The terms of a noncompete agreement can vary and are usually based on the industry, geography and time. For example, a noncompete agreement may bar a retail corporation's CEO from taking another executive-level position with a company in the retail industry in the same region for two years after leaving the company.
