A Tennessee non-compete agreement is a document that employers often use with their employees to clearly define the terms of what the employee may not disclose once he or she leaves the company. These agreements are designed to protect an employer from the employee disclosing the company's trade secrets to maintain a competitive edge against companies in the same industry. Non-compete agreements are legally enforceable documents that will hold an employee accountable should they dissolve any important information to a competitor.
