To keep the worker in his current workplace and prevent him from accepting higher offers from competition, employers use non-competition rules. However, not all competition prohibitions are applicable. Nearly 40 percent of Americans signed a non-compete clause at some point, according to PBS. All these people didn`t know what they were getting into at the time. Probably not. It is more likely that a court will denounce or modify the inappropriate terms of the agreement. Both Kansas and Missouri allow courts to change inappropriate parts of the non-compete rules. This is called the “Blue Pencil” rule. The blue pencil rule allows courts to change the excessive parts of a non-compete clause without distorting the entire agreement.
We dealt with non-publicity in another article: the introduction of no-poaching agreements in Kansas and Missouri. For now, it`s important to remember that competition agreements determine who, when and where your job. Non-advertising limits your ability to bring clients or former colleagues into your new job. Employers can ask workers to agree to a non-compete clause, a ban on poching, or both. .
