Non-compete violations have many facets, and can include:
- Divulging trade secrets
- Sharing business information that has been classified as confidential
- Sharing lead lists with others
- Giving out details of training programs
- Exploiting customer relationships
When you notice that a current or former employee is violating their signed non-compete agreement, it means that the employee is violating your business and compromising the trust you put in him/her. You may initially think that the first course of action is to call your lawyer or the police. However, this is not the best move. If you try to stop the offender from sharing any more of your company’s private information, he/she will be made aware that you know your business’s information is compromised. This could prompt the offender just to stop sharing confidential details about your business, or to continue sharing the information in a more discreet manner. As a result, it could become even harder to gather the necessary evidence to present a case against him/her.
