Employer Wins: Non-Compete Enforced. No Geographic Limitation.

     Nice when employer wins. Here, the Michigan Court of Appeals determined that Employers may place reasonable restrictions on employee’s use of Employer’s customer information and relationships. The Court ruled that a former employee (office manager) must not contact customers of the Employer for 12 months regardless of geographical location.

The Employer won because the employee signed:

 1. Non-Competition and No Solicitation Agreement; and

2. Employer Handbook that contained these restrictions.

     Employers requiring employees to sign non-compete agreements and employee handbooks containing restrictions on competition and the using of Employer’s confidential and proprietary information permit valid enforcement when these restrictions are violated. Nice when our Employer wins! Case: Mid Mich Med. Billing Serv. v. Williams, _____ Mich. App. _____, (2/18/2016); unpublished; Docket #323890; Genesee County Circuit Court Case LC No. 13-101000 CK.
