  • I have been asked to sign a non-compete non-disclosure agreement by my employer. The problem is that its very restricting

    I am using "my" own skills to develop a technology. The company owns the patent. I am just paid a normal salary. He wants me to sign a non compete agreement stating that I wont work on similar technology for 2 years after termination. I understand...

    N.’s Answer

    Frequently, under Texas law, the contract provisions which the employer "requires" the employee to sign are overly broad and unenforceable as to the employee activities restricted, the timescope of the restriction and/or the geographical scope of the restriction. Further, the provisions in such a contract can be challenged as not being supported by independent consideration.
