I left a company on my own after a major change in management resulted in poor customer service and poor quality. I am wanting to work in the business still, and have a question about the wording concerning the geography of the territory. I have signed prior agreements as territories have been realigned, and was always given a list of "counties" in the area I serviced. Though the agreement specifically states "counties" in exhibit A, no counties are listed, only territories. In my former company, a territory was labeled as DFW, for example, but included surrounding counties and cities as well. Since the counties are not specified, is it safe for me to compete outside the counties outside of these cities listed?This Confidentiality and Noncompete Agreement ("Agreement") is between Nationwide Studios, Inc. including its affiliated companies ("Employer") and Diane Geary ("Employee").RecitalsEmployee is or will be employed in Employer's company. In such role, Employee has been, or will be, provided with and will have access to information that Employer considers confidential or proprietary and that provides a competitive advantage to Employer. To protect such information, and in consideration of Employer's employment of Employee, Employee is entering into this Agreement.Section I.Noncompetition and non solicitation of clients.
