So, you're out looking for a new job to pay the bills and support your family. You find several job opportunities for decent pay that may or may not be in the field you want to work in. Eventually you came across a position that you like and get hired with the company. After the initial interview they request for you to come back and fill out new hire paperwork to get started. A couple of days go by and you return to the new employers office to fill out the new hire packet somewhat excited about the new position. After 30 minutes of filling out the new hire packet you come across a thick document that states "Non-Compete Agreement". Do you sign it or not? What do you do?
I am going to share my own experience with non-compete agreements and tell you honestly how I feel about them. the scenario above is something that happened to me to the point where the employer gave misleading information about the context of the agreement. Note: There is much more to the story which I cannot share do to legal reasons but I will give my take on the non-compete and give you the reader excellent advise on how to proceed in a situation like this. I am going to get straight to the point here. If you are ever presented with on of these agreements from an employer, DO NOT SIGN IT EVER!!! By doing so you are giving away your right to compete in a competitive market. chance are you may get sued for pursuing your dream as an employee (I do not like the employee world and this one reason why). Non-Compete Agreements are unconstitutional for low to mid-level employees and really should only be contracted with corporate directors and such for trade secret protection at best. I am still not in favor of them. Every person should have the right to work for who they want to work for. No employer should ever have the right to tell someone where they can and cannot work. Have you heard of the case with Jimmy John's sandwich restaurant? They make all their employees sign non-competes to protect their "secret sauce" sandwich recipe. The company actually sued a former employee for violating the agreement. Are you kidding me??? Is anyone really that interested in stealing their recipe of ham, turkey, or roast beef?
Every wonder what it would be like to have your own business that could very well make you more money than your current job? Even better, you don't have to worry about non-compete agreements! Find out by clicking the image here.
