NJ Non-Compete Law

New Jersey’s non-compete laws generally are enforced by Courts if they are “reasonable” in scope.  A non-compete agreement is generally considered reasonable if it (1) protects the legitimate interests of the employer; (2) does not impose an undue hardship on the employee; and (3) is not injurious to the public.  In the event that the Court determines that the non-compete agreement is not reasonable, the Court may modify the non-compete agreement by reducing those restrictions to make the non-compete agreement reasonable.
