If you're thinking of making a job move - or already did - and are terrified about the impact of your non-compete agreement, you're already way ahead of 90% of people in a similar situation - because you're smart to be scared.
Here are some of the questions you may be facing:
- Will a court deem my non-compete enforceable?
- What will happen to my new job if I'm sued over my non-compete?
- What kind of damages can my old employer recover against me if they win on their non-compete claims?
- How can I limit my exposure, or avoid entirely being sued by my old employer over the non-compete?
Thousands - or Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars - Are Riding on the Answers to These Questions
This is no exaggeration; consider: if you lose your new job, or if your (soon to be) former employer claws back the money they paid you, those are the numbers you are talking about - or worse.
