Employer-Employee Contracts And Agreements
To be valid in Arizona, employment contracts and agreements must meet certain conditions. For example, a noncompete agreement must not violate public policy.
Noncompete and nondisclosure agreements must be drafted carefully, keeping in mind existing Arizona case law concerning the duration, geographical reach and the activity the agreement restricts. Failure to do so could result in a lawsuit.
