The Kansas non-compete agreement is an agreement that prohibits an employee from starting or working for a business that competes with their current employer during their employment and for a specified period of time after their employment terminates. The purpose of the contract is to prevent employees from using experience and knowledge gained during their employment to benefit the employer’s competition. Employers can also add a non-solicitation clause to the agreement that prevents the employee from recruiting their employer’s customers and employees. To be legally enforceable, the geographical area and duration of time covered by the agreement must be reasonable in their scope and necessary to protect the employer’s business interests.
