Covenants-not-to-compete have been an issue between employers and employees for centuries. Within the last century, it has been common for these disputes to end up in the courtroom; Nebraska is no exception. The following paper will analyze what the Nebraska Supreme Court expects from a covenant-not-to-compete in order for it to be enforceable. The three components that the courts need present in a covenant will be explained and linked with past Nebraska cases. These cases paint a clear picture for employers on what must be included in a covenant-not-to-compete for it to be upheld in court.
