A Utah non-compete agreement is a document that employers often use with their employees to prevent them from disclosing trade secrets and business practices to a competitor once they leave the company or are terminated from their position. Each state has different laws that govern non-compete agreements and limit their scope as to what employers may impose on their employees. These limitations often include the time and geographical region that employers may limit employees from working for or with competitors after their employment comes to an end. If an employee violates this agreement, they may be held liable and forced to pay damages, lost profits, and potentially serve jail time.
