Employee agrees that Employee will not make copies or summaries, nor maintain original copies, of confidential information.  Furthermore, any copies of confidential information held by Employee must be returned to Employer within fourteen (14) days of termination of this agreement.  Within that same period of time, any marketing or promotional materials which are considered to be the property of Employer shall be removed from Employee’s social media, place of business, and any other area which may cause confusion among the public as to whether or not Employee is still associated with Employer.  Employee agrees to cease the utilization of Employer’s marketing materials after the date of termination of this agreement.

 

Non-solicitation of clients

Employee agrees for a period of twelve (12) months after leaving for any reason whatsoever not to directly or indirectly solicit competitive business from any client or customer of the organization (including any potential client of Employer) that was contacted, solicited, or served by me or about which Employee received confidential information while Employee was on contract with Employer, nor for the same period of time, will Employee perform services or accept any business, competitive with that of Employer, directly or indirectly from any of the customers and clients described above, which involves Employee performing similar functions or acting in a similar capacity as when Employee was an independent contractor with Employer.

Non-solicitation of other employees or contractors

Employee agrees for a period of twelve (12) months after leaving for any reason whatsoever, not to directly or indirectly recruit, solicit, or otherwise induce or attempt to induce any employee or contractor of Employer to terminate his or her employment or contract with the Company or otherwise to act contrary to the interests of Employer.

Non-Competition

Employee agrees for a period of six (6) months from the date of termination of this agreement, that Employee shall not, in any manner, represent, provide services or engage in any aspects of business that would be deemed similar in nature to the business of Employer without the written consent of Employer.  Nor shall Employee solicit any client, customer, officer, staff or employee for the benefit of himself/herself or a third party that is or may be engaged in a similar business.

 

General Provisions

The parties waive trial by jury in all matters relating to this Agreement.

Should any legal action be instituted relating to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall recover its expenses related to the litigation, including all costs of the lawsuit and all reasonable attorney’s fees.
