Default No compete contract

Does anyone have a simple non compete contract that I could have? Ive hired a guy and I found out that he has been getting work on the side. I brought him on as a partner willing to share profit etc.

I am going have him sign or he can leave the company. My brother inlaw is a lawyer but he doesnt do business law. He said that I could probably find one on line and word it to Alabama state law (2 years on no compete) and that it would stand up in any court.

Thanks for the help

Tom

I think this is a bad bad sign. Once people go down this road, it's a sign of things to come.

What is your view so far on this experience? What would you have done differently and what would you advise others to do?

How about something like this?

Quote:
