Noncompete Agreement


Asked on Jun 3, 2023

Noncompete agreement and moonlighting?

I am an employee at a company that has recently asked me to sign a noncompete agreement. I am considering doing so, but I am concerned about whether or not the agreement would prevent me from taking on additional freelance work outside of my normal job. I am interested in moonlighting and need to know if a noncompete agreement would limit my ability to do so.

If you moonlighting work is in the same business and same market, it is almost certainly prohibited by a noncompete agreement.
