With this minefield of problems, it is difficult to prove that the invitation took place. After all, people have the right to work and change jobs, and they could do so if no one asks them. In many jurisdictions, courts can also change contractual terms to make them legal. In others, they completely resilient the agreement. You should never sign something that your employer gives you lightly. Some contracts are like End User License Agreements (EULAs), and courts don`t expect you to read them all the way. Employers` contracts are a different story and it doesn`t matter how long they last. You may also find no-debauchery agreements buried in employee manuals, stock option and bonus enhancements, retirement plans and elsewhere. If you sign your batch of new recruitment documents, if you start a new job, a no-binge agreement could be one of them. What happens if a former employee does not actively look for employees of the company but contacts the former employee? What if a former grocery store employee met a former customer and handed out a business card? Most prohibitions on debauchery are part of more important documents. Examples are: salespeople, personal services employees and brokers have a difficult situation when they leave a company. Establishing a list of clients may be considered a violation of a no-debauchery agreement, but non-acceptance of the list means that there are no clients.
