Drafting smart noncompetes to protect your Louisiana business

If you are a Louisiana entrepreneur investing the time, money and effort to start a business, there are certain natural concerns you may have concerning future employee turnover. For example, your business may require extensive new employee training and on-the-job learning to get workers up to speed. If an employee takes his or her new knowledge about your industry or processes and leaves to start a new business or join a competitor, the financial investment into training will have been lost and will have to be made again to train a replacement.
