<a >Colorado Court Clarifies When Covenants Not to Compete and Solicit Customers and Employees May Be Enforced Against Executives, Managers and Their Professional Staff.</A>
Like many states, Colorado will not enforce a covenant not to compete unless it fits within a specific exception to the general rule of unenforceability. Unlike most states, however, Colorado permits agreements not to compete with executives, management level employees, or “professional staff to executive and management level personnel” even if the employer is unable to show that the employee possesses trade secrets. Colo. Rev. Stat. § 8-2-113(2)(d).
