Non Compete Contracts for Video Production Companies

As video artists we typically like to create and not deal with the business aspects, however we all need to preserve our clients and not loose them to competitors or to an employee or contract employee. Even if you are only using contract employees make sure they sign a non-compete clause. This will protect you and your business from possibly loosing your clients. If you don’t know what a non-compete clause is here is the legal definition. A non-compete clause, or covenant not to compete (CNC), is a term used in contract law under which one party (usually an employee) agrees to not pursue a similar profession or trade in competition against another party (usually the employer). After experiencing this for ourselves we now have every person that works for us sign one before work begins. Just food for thought next time you use contract employees or have permanent employees.
