Leaving a job in New York and Restrictive Covenants

In New York, it is easy for employers to require restrictive covenants but it can be difficult for them to be enforced after you leave their employment.  However, an employee makes it easier by committing bad acts on the way out the door.  Thus, be very careful about what documents or information you bring with you to your next employer.  To be safe, upon leaving do not take any non-public information that belongs to your former employer and do not take any of the employer’s property.  Finally, speak to an attorney prior to contacting any clients that you service on behalf of the former employer.
