A Washington non-compete agreement is designed for business owners to protect business secrets and other legitimate business interests in the event that an employee or a contractor decides to leave the company. In Washington, non-compete agreements must be considered reasonable. The factors the court uses to determine if a Washington non-compete agreement is reasonable include protecting a legitimate business interest; the geographical restriction; whether the bound party will be able to find work; whether the bound party will have to find a substantially different line of work; and whether the business provided additional compensation to the employee or contractor to convince them to sign the agreement.
