Non-competition agreement

I am a resident of Alabama, and currently employed by a consulting company (as a consultant). When I went to work for this company, I signed an employee agreement that included a "non-competition" clause. In effect, this prohibits me from engaging in business or future employment with any of my current employer's clients for a period of 12 months following my termination, regardless of the reason. So, whether I quit or am fired, I could not perform consultation services for any other company who currently competes with my employer if the services would be for the same client. I subsequently heard that this type of agreement is not legally binding in Alabama. Is this true?



Sorry that I don't know the answer to that question. It would be best for you to ask that of a labor lawyer near you. Try to find one at attorneypages.com
