A non-compete agreement in the state of Nebraska is a document that companies use to minimize their risk of exposure from employees who know sensitive information about the company. Non-compete agreements restrict the actions of an individual once his or her employment ends. These agreements often limit the ability of the employee to procure employment with another competing company after his or her employment ends. Although Nebraska has no statutes that enforce these types of agreements, the state does restrict them.
Nebraska Non-Compete Agreement Laws - None
Nebraska is clear that non-compete agreements can be enforced as long as the agreement is fair in its limitations. This means that a non-compete may only be enforceable as long as it does not cause harm to the public, and it does not impose a hardship greater than necessary to the employee in order to protect the interest of the company.
