How would I copyright my idea of a green product to keep anyone from stealing it?
The agreement may contain terms that prohibit the disclosure of confidential information and competition with your business. The employment of the individual is typically considered adequate consideration to make the contract enforceable. If another employer is aware of the agreement and intentionally seeks to interfere with its terms, it may be possible that that employer is liable for damages for intentional interference with a contract.
Courts will enforce non-competition agreements if:
-the employer proves that it has a legitimate business interest to protect by restricting its employees' right to compete against it;
-the restriction on the employee's right to compete is no greater than that necessary to protect the employer's business interest; and
-the covenant not to compete is supported by consideration, meaning that the employee received something in exchange for it.
