Asked on Jul 13, 2023

Can a noncompete agreement be waived?

I am a small business owner in the retail industry and I am looking to hire a new employee. The employee has a noncompete agreement with their previous employer that I am concerned about. I want to know if it's possible for the agreement to be waived so that I can be sure I'm making the right decision in hiring this employee.

Yes, the parties to contracts can always agree to amendments and waivers. However, the former employer may have no interest in waiving the contract in this particular situation.
