As a business owner, you will certainly be faced with the task of hiring new employees. While you are focused on getting the right person for the job, there are certain legal requirements that you cannot overlook to avoid being sued for discrimination or liability issues.
The Nevada Supreme Court passed a decision last year that may have caused your agreement to become invalid. In the case of Golden Road Motor Inn, v. Islam, the court held that non-compete agreements cannot extend further than what is reasonable and cannot create hardship on the employee. The biggest change from the ruling is the decision that courts may not "blue line" ("blue pencil") contracts, meaning to change or delete terms to make the contract legal.
