Are Employee Non-Compete Agreements Enforceable in Michigan?

Employment Law Attorneys Ann Arbor

Employers commonly condition the hire of a new employee on their willingness to agree in writing that after leaving the job, he or she will not engage in another job or a business that is competitive with the employer’s business.

Being subject to such an agreement after one’s employment ends, is likely to create unexpected concerns for both employee and employer. In light of today’s tight job market, a terminated employee, with limited job skills and experience, may suddenly find himself with few, if any, employment opportunities.
