Employers may require employees to sign noncompetition agreements or confidentiality agreements that restrict what they can do after they leave employment with the company. These post-employment restrictions are now governed by the new Georgia Restrictive Covenant Act. The new law allows courts to enforce noncompete agreements in certain circumstances to the extent the court finds the restrictions to be reasonable. Employees leaving one company to work for another may have to review the restrictions they agreed to during their employment. Often, these kinds of cases can result in immediate litigation when an employer seeks an injunction prohibiting a former employee from going to work for a competitor.
