Maryland, MD asked in Employment Law for Maryland

Q: Where do i go to find out more about non-compete clause in the maryland code?

A job offer contract agreement was signed with no mention of a non-compete clause. A year later, a separate non-compete agreement was signed offering no added benefits. the initial contract provided employment for 4 years. Six years later the employee opened his/her own practice but clients from his old employer jumped on without being induced by the employee. Now, the employee is being sued for breach of contract.

A: You should have a Maryland employment lawyer review the employment contract, the non-compete agreement and the lawsuit. The law that governs Maryland non-compete agreements is not always intuitive or logical. More information is available at: http://mdemploymentlaw.blogspot.com/search/label/Non-Competes
