Do You KNow? Colorado Law and Non-Compete Agreements

Comments Off

Colorado law provides that a non-compete agreement is considered void (of no effect) unless it falls within one of four statutory criteria. This is because Colorado deems the employee’s right to work as being the most important interest, unless the employer demonstrates that a restrictive covenant is both necessary and no broader than necessary. A non-compete agreement that falls within one of the four statutory categories must also be reasonable in terms of geographic scope and duration. If you have questions about a non-compete agreement, you should consult an attorney experienced in dealing with non-compete agreements.
