Maryland Non-Compete Agreement Unenforceable As Applied to Salespeople Processing Competitive Bids

Here, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals held that a company's non-compete agreement was unenforceable as it applied to two salespeople.  The Court reasoned that because the sales at issue  "were won or lost on competitive bids, not sales relationships," the employer had no legally protectable interest in enforcing the agreement.    The Court relied heavily on a Ecology Services v. Clym Environmental to hold that the salespeople did not fall within the class of employees who can covered by a non-compete agreement in Maryland.
