What Is Infosys Non Compete Agreement

Informationys followed TWC`s request, but initially approached contractors to inquire about possible non-competition bans in their contracts with Acclaim. One contractor said in an email, “I don`t have a non-compete clause with Acclaim.” The same contractor also stated on a job application that he had no contractual restrictions, including non-competition clauses. The other three contractors stated orally that they were not subject to non-competition agreements and that their employer, as a subcontractor, did not inform Infosys, upon request, of any non-competition clause. Indeed, the four contracting parties had non-competitive individuals in their contracts with Acclaim. Second, make sure your files are checked properly. Staff should not have access to personal records without request and paper files should be kept secret. All important documents, such as non-competition contracts or clauses, should be scanned and stored digitally with password protection. Very few employees will be sneaky enough to sneak into the files and delete the pages of signatures like the guy in the case I described previously in this article, but there is no need to create the possibility of fraud. As the referee says before the start of the match, you protect yourself at all times. Non-competitive agreements with large employees can often be just as useless, but with far less terrible results. Recently we had a case where a major employee left our client`s business and tried to steal business. The client considered that it was a valid competition agreement, in part because the signing of such an agreement was a precondition for employment in the company.

But when the CEO entered the file to retrieve the corresponding agreement, it lacked a signature page of dozens and dozens of competition contracts. You guessed it — it was the competition signature page for the employee who left and started competing with our client. The employee denied that he had already signed the agreement. We finally settled down. This case shows that companies should exercise the necessary diligence to establish the existence of a possible non-competition obligation. Measures that can be taken in the context of such diligence include the verification of existing contracts that may be re-recruited and the signing of certifications for potential hires and contractors with respect to the existence of competitive conditions or any other contractual restrictions on their ability to perform the tasks of their proposed new position. Businesses should not require that a potential worker not compete with her former employer. On the contrary, as part of the recruitment process, companies should obtain the employee`s assurance that she can do the work for which she is engaged without violating a legally binding agreement she has entered into with her (soon) former employer. This insurance generally protects the new employer from liability. The requirement for competitive competition with former employers, in the hope of determining whether the hiring of the new employee could create a legal risk, could effectively create a risk that would otherwise not exist.

There are many problems with the application of competition agreements against former employees. Recently, at Acclaim Systems v. Infosys (which you can read here), the Third Circuit fought between two IT service providers who worked with Time Warner Cable on a Salesforce software project. Time Warner has decided to transfer the project from Company A (Acclaim) to Company B (Infosys). Four Acclaim employees then left directly or as subcontractors for Infosys.
