More employers are using non-compete agreements

It is not unusual for Twin Cities employers to use non-compete agreements to prevent their employees from taking business secrets and contacts to competitors. Non-compete clauses are often found in employment contracts in the technology sector as well as in those for sales jobs and senior corporate positions in various industries.

Minneapolis company sues competitor for stealing trade secrets

Many Twin Cities companies protect their rights to unique products, technologies, and services by registering trademarks, filing patents and obtaining copyrights. Companies also may ask their employees to sign non-compete agreements in order to protect a business from being undermined by competitors. In some cases, even when a company has all of the proper copyright and trade secret protections in place, a competitor may still find a way to illegally slant the playing field.
