The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the state of New Jersey. When people are ready to be their own boss, they often look to start a company, buy another business, or go into a partnership with a friend.

Businesses hope to function with a healthy and respectful work environment where high productivity and cooperation is the goal and philosophy. In some cases, a business can face a lawsuit because of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims at the hands of their employees. In some cases, the employee has a valid case at the hands of a coworker or supervisor. Business owners cannot reasonably micromanage every working relationship that exists and these issues arise. An employee has the right to use state and federal laws in order to protect their rights and hold offenders accountable. In some cases, an employee uses a frivolous lawsuit in order to make a quick dollar. When a business faces these lawsuits, the burden of proof is solely on the plaintiff.

Employers in competitive industries have a lot to consider when taking on new employees. Often, businesses will draft non-compete agreements in order to stop an employee from taking ideas and starting their own company on the back of hard work. Other times, a non-compete agreement can reasonably stop an employee from joining a competitor and sharing the ideas that make your business so successful. The state is not keen to enforce non-compete agreements as it limits a person’s ability to make a living. Under reasonable circumstances, a non-compete agreement can block unfair competition and protect intellectual property. What constitutes “reasonable” depends on the court that hears the case related to a breach of contract. The Mark Law Firm, LLC has years of experience drafting durable, reasonable non-compete agreements. If you need our law services, contact our firm today.
