A Connecticut non-solicitation agreement is a document that forbids an employee from soliciting the business of clients and “poaching” coworkers. Non-solicitation agreements are valuable for any entity whose success relies heavily on client relationships. They are also helpful for employers that provide unique training to employees and wish to prevent those workers from being recruited by business rivals. The agreement will designate a duration in which solicitation is prohibited, usually lasting several years after termination of employment. It may also identify a specific geographical area where the contract’s restrictions apply.
