  • Non-Compete agreements Ohio

    I have a non-compete agreement and am looking to leave my employer to work for what would be considered a direct competitor in the same job compacity. The question is I do not believe that the agreement is valid and can be inforced. I did sign the agreement but on the same page there is a line that says "in the presence of" and has a space for them to sign it as well as stamp in with the corporate seal. They did not sign it, date it, or stamp with the corporate seal. Would this make the agreement invalid?

    Show it to a local attorney. We cannot comment on an agreement we have not read (or seen).
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      I think you are missing the point. No one here is an Ohio attorney and contract law varies from state to state. A message board cannot substitute for actual legal advice.

      If you want to know whether there is a statute automatically voiding the agreement in these circumstances, there is not one.

      I have deleted the copy of the agreement for your own protection.
