A Nebraska non-solicitation agreement is an agreement between two parties — usually an employee and an employer — that is intended to protect the business’s interests and proprietary information. It sets certain restrictions on the employee’s ability to solicit the company’s clients, personnel, contractors, and other business relationships for their own benefit after leaving the company. These restrictions are only enforceable in a specific geographic region and for a specific time period. 

Is It Legally Enforceable in Nebraska? 

Yes — as long as the restrictions are not harmful to the employee or the public, and they are no more severe than is absolutely necessary for the sake of protecting business interests.
