Nonsolicitation is an agreement in which an employee or other party agrees to refrain from encouraging another party’s employees or customers to change their relationship with the other party in a way that would disadvantage the other party.

Nonsolicitation agreements may contain prohibitions against soliciting or encouraging any other company employee or other service provider from leaving the company; hiring or engaging other company employees (sometimes called a “no hire”); or soliciting the company’s customers or prospective customers.
