Non-compete agreement for moonlighting employees

We have several managers and staff employees that perform the same work for us as they do when they "moonlight" for our competitors(ie, bartend, banquet server, or waiter). Can we limit this moonlighting as long as they are employed by our company? They do it because they want to earn extra money. I would like to offer the better employees additional compensation but have them sign a non-compete agreement that is only in force during their employment tenure with us. It would call for immediate termination if it were determined that they had violated this non-compete agreement. Is this something we should consider?

Non-Compete?

You should consider a policy that will accomplish your aim but a non-compete is likely not the way to go for this particular purpose. I suggest you make an appointment to see a Board Certified employment lawyer. Take care.
