Take a Stand to Protect Employees’ Basic Rights

Non-compete agreements, and overly broad confidentiality, and non-disparagement agreements are bad for everyone – employees, companies, and the economy. Join us and take a stand against these abusive employee agreements.

We are calling on business leaders to no longer ask employees to sign a non-compete or overly broad confidentiality and non-disparagement agreements.

There is a growing movement throughout the country to limit the use of restrictive employee agreements. But we need to do more. So Veeva is taking action against unfair business practices that limit employee rights.

Many companies use non-competes and overly broad confidentiality and non-disparagement agreements within their standard terms of employment. These agreements undermine competitiveness in the market and exploit people by restricting their ability to move between jobs.

These agreements infringe people’s basic rights and stifle economic growth.

Every employee has the responsibility to return all data to their former employer and never share confidential information. Non-compete and agreements and overly broad confidentiality and non-disparagement agreements are an overreaction to this concern and consequently, often abusive.

Employees typically sign them unknowingly as a condition of employment and later realize they cannot pursue new opportunities in their field of expertise. These agreements strip an individual of their bargaining power to earn and provide for their families and, ultimately, harm careers.

When employees are unrestricted to pursue success, innovation and growth are accelerated. Everyone benefits – employees, companies, and the economy at large.

Help break the cycle and take a stand – sign the pledge to support innovation and employees’ basic rights to move freely between jobs.

Take a Stand for Employee Rights

Non-compete agreements are bad for everyone – employees, companies, and industries. Join us and take a stand against this outdated business practice.

We are calling on all innovators and business leaders to no longer ask employees to sign a non-compete.

There is a growing movement in many states and at the national level to limit and prohibit the use of non-competes. California banned non-competes long ago. The free flow of people and ideas has contributed to Silicon Valley’s success and culture of innovation. And the mobility of talent has helped create the thriving growth market that exists today. Oklahoma and New Mexico have also banned non-compete agreements.

Many companies use non-competes within their standard terms of employment. Not only do these agreements undermine competitiveness in the market, but they also exploit people by restricting their ability to move between jobs.

Non-competes agreements infringe people’s rights and stifle economic growth.

Most non-compete agreements are abusive and overly broad. Employees often agree to them unknowingly and later realize they cannot pursue new opportunities. They strip an individual of their bargaining power to earn and provide for their families and, ultimately, harm careers.

People should no longer work under the threat of lawsuits or have their lives unfairly impacted and derailed. When employees are unrestricted to pursue success, innovation and growth is accelerated. Everyone benefits – employees, companies, and the economy at large.

Help break the non-compete cycle and take a stand.

Sign the petition to promote and support innovation, competition, and most importantly, people having the freedom to move between jobs.
