A Texas Temporary Restraining Order Can Prevent an Ex-Employee from Competing with a Former Employer

/ 09/12/2010

If an employee who is subject to a covenant not to compete leaves an employer to work for a competing business, the employer may find itself in an emergency legal situation.  Keith Clouse, a Dallas non-compete lawyer, suggests that an employer who believes an ex-employee has or will violate a non-compete agreement contact employment counsel immediately.  Employment counsel may be able to obtain a temporary restraining order to preserve the employer’s rights and to prevent the ex-employee from taking further adverse actions against the employer. 

A temporary restraining order is a court order that is issued only in emergency situations and that applies only for a brief time.  With it, a court can prohibit a former employee from competing with an employer and from soliciting its employees and customers.  Because a temporary restraining order lasts for a brief time, before the order expires, the court must conduct a hearing to determine if a legal basis exists to continue the prohibition until the matter proceeds to trial. 

To speak to Mr. Clouse about a non-compete agreement or to request assistance in filing or opposing an application for a temporary restraining order, contact the Dallas non-compete lawyers at Clouse Dunn Khoshbin LLP at [email protected].
