Attorney Joseph Lanza and Seth Grove on Non-Compete Enforceability

Are Non-Compete Agreements Enforceable If I Have Been Terminated?

While non-compete agreements are legal in Texas, their validity is mostly determined by whether they are reasonable in terms of scope, duration, and geographical limitation. Enforcing a non-compete agreement after the termination of an employee is dependent on several factors, including:

  • The wording of the agreement
  • The employee's position
  • The reason for termination

If the release was due to reasons beyond the employee's control, such as layoffs or downsizing, the courts may be more inclined to view the non-compete as unenforceable. In contrast, if the employee voluntarily left their position, the agreement's enforceability may be preserved, especially if the terms are reasonable.
