Forum Questions About Noncompete Agreement
i work for a employer from illinois ,however i am in california. My contract has non compete clause. will that be enforceable
My employer has placed me in a position thru another vendor. My employer contract with that vendor is ending. So vendor contacted me. However I am in contract with my employer for 1 year contract.
Short answer: Probably no, non-compete and non-solicitation clauses are not usually enforceable on an employee in California. Long Answer: Regardless of the choice of law provision in your contract, if an enforcement action is brought against you in California, the California courts will dismiss it as it goes against the "public policy of the state" unless your employer can make a really compelling case. Most states respect the stated public policy of other states when deciding matters against their citizens, so even if the case was brought in another states courts your soon to be former employer would probably be powerless to get a judgement enforcing your non-compete.
Can I work for a competitor with my current noncompete?
I have ended my non competent consulting agreement with my current employee and I have an offer to work as an employer “not as consultant” with a competitor company to my privious employees so can I work as an employee without any problem? The consultant agreement says the following: Under any circumstances the consultant shall not engage directly or indirectly either as a principal agent , consultant,stock holder , partner or in any other capacity whatsoever have any other relationship with any business which compete with the company in USA.
I suggest that you have an attorney review the entire agreement. It is hard to comment reading a paragraph taken out of context. From the limited facts you present, it seems that you cannot accept this job offer without violating the terms of the non-compete.
