Employers often require employees to sign non-compete, trade secret, and/or confidential information agreements. This often occurs at the beginning of (or sometimes during) the employment relationship, or even upon separation as part of a severance agreement.

Non-compete agreements can make it much more difficult to find another job, and significantly affect a person’s career. Colorado law places limits on when a non-compete agreement can be enforced, and requires employment restrictions to be reasonable in both time and scope.
