A non-compete agreement in the state of Nevada is a legal document that companies use to protect their business interests by obtaining a written promise from their employees that they will not disclose their trade secrets once their time with the company comes to an end. Companies usually require that once an employee’s time with the company comes to an end, that he or she refrain from working with competitors for a certain period of time and similar companies within a geographic region.
