Enforceability in Texas of Covenants Not to Compete

Section 15.50(a) of the Texas Business & Commerce Code governs covenants not to compete. Under Texas law, a non-compete clause is only enforceable if it is included in an otherwise enforceable agreement, if the employee received some benefit in return for signing it, and if the non-competition restrictions is reasonable in regards to its restrictiveness for:

  • Time
  • Geographical area
  • Scope of activity

There are additional requirements to enforce a non-compete agreement against a physician.

Unfortunately, if a non-compete clause is poorly drafted, a judge could find that the agreement is unenforceable.
