In New York, non-solicitation agreements forbid former or departing employees from soliciting other employees to work for another employer, for a definite period of time. Non-solicitation agreements may also forbid the employee from soliciting the company’s customers and/or vendors, after leaving the employer. If you were directed to sign a non-solicitation agreement, it advisable to have the agreement reviewed by an employment lawyer before you sign it.
