David Kleinmann Quoted on Non-Compete Agreements in The Baltimore Sun

July 19, 2017

Restrictive Covenant practice co-chair David Kleinmann was quoted in the July 7 Baltimore Sun article, “Employers Use Non-Compete Agreements Even for Low-Wage Workers.” The article addresses that although employers have traditionally used non-compete agreements to keep highly skilled and highly paid workers from jumping to competitors and stealing trade secrets, they are now using them in the broader workplace among low-wage workers.

In the article, David explained how technology has made it easier for employees to steal a large volume of confidential information that could be stored on a flash drive or the cloud. He also explained how courts will frequently alter overbroad covenants in an equitable manner when they are challenged in court to protect low-level employees, although the courts are not pleased when employees steal information or clients.
