Expiration of Non-compete Agreement Limits Damages

An employer cannot extend a non-competition agreement beyond the agreed-upon duration, even if an injunction has been entered and the court has not decided on an appeal.  Any relief at that point would be limited to a damages remedy.  The full decision can be found by clicking here: EMC Corporation v Emanuel Arturi, et al.

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU:  As with any time-sensitive document, it is wise to move quickly should there be a need for action regarding the terms of the agreement.  Contact Muller Law or another attorney should there be any questions regarding a Non-compete agreement or other type of time-sensitive agreement.
