Cedar Rapids non-compete review attorneys can help individuals who are required to sign an agreement not to compete with their employer. These lawyers can review the agreement before it is signed and advise whether it may be enforceable. They can also represent clients who have been sued for breach of a covenant and need advice about how to defend themselves.
Iowa courts have upheld restrictive covenants that limit competition by physicians as a matter of public policy. However, restrictive covenants involving other types of employees are more likely to be considered unenforceable. Some examples of such agreements that are not enforceable include agreements that last for an excessively long period of time or those that cover an area that is unreasonably large.
