Tennessee non-solicitation agreement is a contract between an employer and an employee that limits the employee’s ability to use connections made during their period of employment after they leave the company. These limitations may only apply to certain timeframes and geographical areas.

Is It Legally Enforceable in Tennessee?

Yes. While there is no specific state statute governing non-solicitation agreements, courts decide whether a non-solicitation agreement is reasonable and thus enforceable based on its potential impacts on the employer, employee, and public interest. (Vantage Technology, LLC v. Cross (1999))

There is, however, a statute stating that contracts restricting a healthcare provider’s ability to practice after concluding employment with an employer must be limited with respect to geographical area and timeframe. These agreements must not exceed two years. (Tennessee Code Title 63. Professions of the Healing Arts § 63-1-148)
