A template for a non-compete agreement is a document that serves as an agreement between a business and an employee or prospective employee. Employees can use it to protect their interests and those of the company in the event that the employee discloses information that benefits the company. Templates have been used in different fields, including those in business and law. A template is a document that has been created by someone other than the person who is providing the services and has been given to help people negotiate non-compete agreements.

How to Get a Right Non-Compete Agreement Template?

A template is most ideal for those who are on a tight budget but still want to get a document that will serve as the basis for a non-compete agreement. It may be difficult to come across a ready-made template for this but there are several different ways in which you can acquire one. The most cost-effective is to get your own copy of Microsoft Word, though there are free programs that may work just as well. One of the simplest methods is to simply open Microsoft Word and find the “Help” menu.

You can also download from the internet free non-compete agreement templates. Such templates usually contain details such as the date that the agreement will take effect and any location where it must be carried out. Templates differ from company to company, so it is important that you choose one that contains the details you need in order to successfully execute your agreement. However, because a template costs nothing, there is no need to purchase the whole document so if you do not have funds available you can always use a free MS Word template.

You may also obtain a broadsheet of various non-compete agreements that may prove useful. You should make sure that you get a complete version from an authorized source because some suppliers are able to make one up and sell them on at a profit while others are merely reproducing an already prepared document. The advantage of obtaining a broadsheet of non-compete agreements is that you can check each section and determine if there is anything that you may have missed or forgotten and then adjust accordingly to suit your agreement.

How to Create a Non-Compete Agreement?

Before you actually begin preparing your agreement you will need to draw up and sign a consent form. This forms part of the entire document and is often the last part before you begin work. It is important that you ensure that all parties have consented to the creation of the document and that they are aware of what it legally grants the other party. You cannot simply take the consent form from any source, as there are legal complications available. If you cannot obtain a blank consent form from your former employer, it is often possible to obtain one from the employee himself or herself in order to provide a more detailed explanation of their agreement with the former employer.

There are several standard elements that must be present in every non-compete agreement. The first of which is the phrase “Employee Use and Access”. This clause gives the protected party the right to use and access the property owned by the aggrieved party. In this clause, the employee must be allowed to have access to any information the employee obtains both outside and inside the office of the former employer.

Confidential Clause:

Another element of a typical non-compete and/or employee non-compete agreement is that it must include a confidentiality clause. This clause outlines that any information relating to the business operations of the former employer and/or information relating to the employees will not be revealed to any third party. As with the permission of the access element, this can be limited in different ways.

Provisions:

Finally, many times a provision will outline the type of payment if a former employee is willing to release or divulge information. It is not uncommon for an employee to be offered a lump sum amount if they are willing to leave the former company. If a former employee is being forced to leave a former employer due to wrongful termination, then the same provisions of a standard non-compete agreement would apply. A standard non-compete agreement typically provides the former employee with certain rights to certain information, but often the agreements put these rights in jeopardy should the former company not live up to their end of the bargain.
