The Wyoming non-compete & non-solicitation agreement is used to restrict an employee’s ability to both compete against their employer and solicit individuals associated with the employer’s company. Use of the agreement ensures employers that their business interests won’t be infringed upon by ex-employees using information and experience attained while employed. The post-employment restrictions will last for a predetermined period and shall be limited to a geographic radius no greater than what is needed to protect the employer’s business.
Laws – No statutes. Wyoming case law has shown that courts will enforce non-compete & non-solicitation agreements based on the following (see Hopper v. All Pet Animal Clinic, Inc.):
- Whether the restrictions of the agreement are fair.
- Whether the duration and geographic limitations are necessary to safeguard the employer’s business interests.
- Whether the restrictions impose undue hardships on the employee.
- Whether the agreement was supported by reasonable consideration.
Non-Compete Limit – No statutory defined limit.
Non-Solicitation Limit – No statutory defined limit.
