An Alaska non-solicitation agreement is a contract between a company and an employee that prohibits the employee from obtaining the company’s customers, clients, employees, and contractors in order to compete. The purpose of the agreement is to protect the company from any employee using the resources of the employer for their own benefit.

Is It Legally Enforceable in Alaska?

Yes — it is legally enforceable if the agreement does not prohibit the employee from practicing their specialty (Metcalfe Investments, Inc. v. Garrison (1996)).
