  • non-compete law North Carolina

    Recently a ruling regarding non-compete clauses was defeated in the courts in NC. Anyone have an idea what it was, where I could find it on the internet? Thank you!

      fair question...when you have been out of work from your trade for one year because of a lay off and a non-compete clause I was just looking for some help on finding it on my own. Thanks for reading my thread. With the cost of gas and thousands of dollars in lost wages...just wanted to see if anyone could help me locate this information. I've googled alot and can't find what I'm looking for. Thanks

        wish that was true

        Been depends how the non-compete was written. NC is a blue pencil state. A judge is the only one who can cross out what might be to restrictive. My non-compete states with or without cause. Knowing that, it will cost me $5-7,000 in attorney fees to get it in front of a judge. Judge might rule in their favor. I lost a substantial job because of it. I haven't seen any ruling on a true lay-off. Mine was for financial reasons. Doesn't seem fair huh?

          JoeC: Just wanted to say thank you for your input. I did go to a new attorney and he found a small clause in the non-compete employment agreement that my former employer needed to address in writing to me. He did not by the due date which therefore he gave up his right to keep me under the agreement. This is great news for me!
