Non Competition Agreement New Jersey

| 0

A non-compete agreement that amounts to the sale of a business is given more leeway than restrictive agreements that enter into an employment contract. For example, a seller sells a hair salon to a buyer and, as part of the sale, the buyer asks the seller to execute a non-compete agreement prohibiting the seller from working as a hairdresser for five years within a ten-mile radius.

If the seller were allowed to profit from the sale of his business and reopen a new competing business within the competition area, the buyer would lose goodwill related to the purchase and the nature of the transaction would be destroyed.

Currently, the New Jersey courts decide whether a non-compete agreement is applicable on a case-by-case basis. In general, a non-compete agreement "takes effect if it is appropriate in all circumstances on a case-by-case basis," i.e.:
