The article explains how employers generally seek protection by utilizing agreements with their employees. Generally, these agreements consist of one or more of the following three types of agreements: non-compete clauses designed to prevent employees from working for competitors, non-solicitation clauses prohibiting employees from pitching services to a company’s clients after leaving that company, or non-disclosure agreements restricting employees and agencies from disclosing and using proprietary information.
