What’s worse than not having a noncompete agreement? One that doesn’t meet North Carolina’s strict requirements—and gets tossed out of court.
Avoid this problem by having a North Carolina attorney draft any employment and noncompete agreements.
Recent case: Mark Dickinson worked for Unisource Worldwide, a paper company, when Asheboro Paper and Packaging lured him away. Asheboro had Dickinson sign a noncompete agreement that limited his ability to work for any competitor.
Dickinson soon returned to Unisource, and Asheboro sued to enforce its agreement.
The court refused to issue an injunction after reading the agreement and finding it went beyond what North Carolina law allows. (Asheboro Paper and Packaging v. Dickinson, No. 108-CV-00914, MD NC, 2009)
