A non-competition agreement is a contract or clause in your contract that prohibits you from starting a business or profession that is a direct competitor of your current employer. Several companies ask their employees to sign these agreements in an attempt to protect their business and clients in case they are poached. A non-competition agreement usually keeps the company secrets safe, making sure they are not used against the company.
