The main legal problem with the prohibition of debauchery is the unofficial right to work. Like the right to privacy, it is not an official part of the Bill of Rights. The fact is that everyone has the right to work in a chosen profession. No qualifications or jobs available are one thing, but an employer cannot force anyone to work for them or be unemployed. These agreements are in place to protect key employees and customer relationships. When an outgoing employee asks her friends to join her new company, it`s called advertising and sometimes poaching. The same goes for inviting customers to support the new business instead of the old one. As might be expected, companies most often use no-poot agreements with employees who interact a lot with customers, customers, and employees. For example, a doctor`s administrative assistant would have a long and confidential customer list, and a salesperson working for a company that sells to other companies would have personal relationships with any customer.
Companies that make something generic like copper wire need to be even more careful. If you are an employer and you notice that a former employee is violating the no-pocher agreement, it is important to act quickly and obtain a dismissal order. To get one, you must prove that the agreement is valid and that the employee acted against it. There are several reasons why a court might rule against a deal: Many companies require high-level executives and senior executives and directors to sign a no-pocher agreement. The buyer of a business may also require the seller to sign a no-pocher agreement to prevent the seller from removing customers and employees from the business. A prohibition on debauchery may also apply in the case of a sale or restructuring. The terms of the sale may contain a special no-pocher agreement, which states that the former owner may not take some or a few employees out. When an employee or other person participating in a company signs a no-pocher agreement and violates its terms, the company may take legal action against that person. Prohibitions on debauchery are not so risky, which is why the courts impose them more often.
Nevertheless, they must meet certain conditions (outside of California): a no-pocher agreement is one of many clauses that often appear in employment contracts. They can also be considered as single contracts. Others include non-compete and confidentiality agreements. The three together are sometimes called restrictive alliances. These agreements may apply to both temporary agency workers and regular workers. A recent appeal case in Houston shows that Texas courts treat them as non-compete rules when deemed enforceable. In this case, an insurance broker was bound by a contract of employment that contained the following provision: Accordingly, the board of directors understands and accepts that for a period of two (2) years thereafter.
