Are non-compete contracts legal in Virginia?

Yes, non-compete contracts are legal in Virginia.

However, just because non-compete contracts are legal does not mean that every non-compete contract will be enforced.

In fact, many employers use poorly written, formulaic non-compete clauses in employment contracts that have never been updated – even though the law has changed.

Before employers can enforce a non-compete contract – even though it is legal to do so – an experienced non-compete lawyer can review the contract’s terms and determine whether a court will uphold it.
