Instructions & Checklist
 Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement

   The Employer should review the Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement to ensure that it contains no provisions that are not inconsistent with its existing rules or policies (e.g. employee manual).

   The Employer must sign the Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement.

   The Employee must sign the Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement.

   The Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement should be signed at the beginning of the employment relationship.

   Generally both the Employer and the Employee each retain an original signed Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement. Therefore, two original copies of the Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement should be executed (i.e. signed).  

   If the Employee is covered by a collective bargaining agreement or union contract, check with your attorney to determine whether you can use this agreement.

   Laws vary from time to time and from state to state. These forms are not intended to be and are not a substitute for legal advice. These forms should only be a starting point for you and should not be used or signed before first consulting with an attorney to ensure that it addresses your particular situation. An attorney should be consulted before negotiating any document with another party.

General Information
Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement

An Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement is an agreement between an employer and an employee whereby the employee agrees not to solicit the employers customers, clients or employees for a certain amount of time after the termination of employees employment.  In addition to the provisions described above, this form also includes a confidentiality provision.

Most states will enforce this type of agreement.  However, these states will also generally require that for the agreement to be enforceable the employee must have received “consideration” for signing the agreement.  This means that the employee must have received some gain from signing the agreement.  Because of this, it is best if the employee signs the Employee Non-Solicitation Agreement at the beginning of his/her employment; then it becomes a condition of his/her employment and the gain the employee receives (the job) is obvious.

Employment relationships are governed by both federal and state law.  Many of the state laws differ dramatically (e.g. some states have imposed strict limitations on these types of clauses); therefore, employers and employees should become familiar with the laws of their specific state and the federal government before entering into an employment arrangement.  Furthermore, before using the form you should always consult with your attorney to ensure that it addresses your specific situation.

This document should not be used with employees that are covered by a collective bargaining agreement or union contract until carefully reviewed by the employers counsel.

NOW THEREFORE, the Parties agree as follows:

1.  NON-SOLICITATION OF CUSTOMERS: For a period of __________________ (e.g. six months) following the termination of employment with Employer for any reason, Employee agrees not to directly or indirectly induce, recruit or solicit any of Employers clients or customers, whether potential or otherwise, with whom Employee had dealings with on behalf of Employer during his/her employment with Employer.

2.  NON-SOLICITATION OF EMPLOYEES: Employee agrees that for a period of ______________ (e.g. six months) following the termination of his/her employment with Employer, Employee will not induce, recruit or solicit any of the Employers employees to terminate their employment or enter into another employment arrangement with Employee or a third party.
 
3.  CONFIDENTIALITY:  Employee acknowledges that Employer shall or may, in reliance upon this Agreement, grant Employee access to Employers confidential and proprietary information.  Employee agrees to not disclose to any other person (unless required by law) or use for personal gain any such confidential or proprietary information at any time during or after the termination of employment, unless Employer grants express, written consent of such a disclosure.
