Noncompete Agreement


Asked on Jun 3, 2023

Noncompete agreement and promotions?

I recently accepted a promotion within my company and was asked to sign a noncompete agreement. I am concerned that if I accept the promotion and then leave the company, that I will not be able to take a similar position with another company. I am also worried that if I don't accept the promotion, I may be at risk of being terminated. I need to know what my rights are and what the implications are of signing the noncompete agreement.

It depends on the terms of the non-compete and the size of your employer. Without seeing the agreement and knowing the size of your employer, I can't offer more advice.
