What is a noncompete?

Added by and answered by Becca Quigley

Answer

A noncompete agreement is language inserted into an employment contract that, once signed, legally bars the worker from pursuing employment, or starting a company, in “a related field.” These “agreements” can be of any length and breadth, and are often concealed or not mentioned during the hiring process.
