Non-Compete News – Third Circuit Says Tortious Interference with a Non-Compete Requires Actual Knowledge of the Agreement at Issue

FordHarrison LLP • July 14, 2017
Executive Summary: An employer hiring an individual known to be subject to a non-compete contract can expect to be accused of tortiously interfering with that contract. On the other hand, the hiring employer should be innocent of wrongdoing if it has no idea the new hire is bound by a restrictive covenant. In Acclaim Sys. v. Infosys, Ltd., 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 2325 (3d Cir. 2017), the Third Circuit recently affirmed this common-sense approach by holding an employer lacking actual knowledge of a restrictive covenant cannot be liable for tortious interference with that covenant.
