The Minnesota non-compete and non-solicitation agreement is a written agreement in which an employee agrees not to compete against their employer’s business. The purpose of the contract is to prevent employees from using the employer’s insider information and contacts to compete against them. The non-solicitation portion of the document prohibits the employee from soliciting the employer’s clients and other employees. Once signed, non-compete agreements remain effective during the time that the employee is employed and for a set period after their employment has ended. In order for the document to be legally valid, the agreement must be justifiable in the limitations that it places on the employee.
