Updated December 07, 2022

Wyoming non-solicitation agreement is a contract between an employer and an employee that restricts the employee from soliciting the employer’s customers or clients after finishing their period of employment. Similar to a non-disclosure or non-compete agreement, a non-solicitation agreement can be a stand-alone document or be included as a clause in an employment contract. 

Is It Legally Enforceable in Wyoming?

Yes. While there is no state statute governing non-solicitation agreements, case law has determined that the contracts must protect the legitimate interests of the employer and be reasonable in terms of duration and geographical limitations.

What is considered “reasonable” is determined on a case-by-case basis. Enforceable agreements must not be contrary to public policy. (Hopper v. All Pet Animal Clinic, Inc. (1993))
