    I have signed many non-competes with different companies, I am working under 2 right now. I never pay attention to them and work for who I want. My friend, who is an attorney told me they never hold up in court..at my level. The employer would have to prove I was poaching students and I never mention the other colleges I work. When I was in sales, my non compete was within a 50 mile radius. I doubt the employer would pursue legal action for someone who picks the potatoes. Executives are another story and they can share sensitive information.

    They changed the law in Idaho, the onus is on the employee to prove his leaving did not hurt the corporation he left.

    First a disclaimer. This info WAS valid up to the late 1980s. In Canada, non-competition contracts are unenforceable. But sharing proprietary information gained at one company with another is illegal and actionable. Obviously it becomes a legal nightmare and only the lawyers win.

    BOISE, Idaho — Idaho achieved a notable distinction last year: It became one of the hardest places in America for someone to quit a job for a better one.

    The state did this by making it easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements, which prevent employees from leaving their company for a competitor.

    Non-compete clauses need to be austerely regulated, as they are often rooted in bullshit coercion.

    Where? With this new law, all the employers will have non-compete clauses.

    Which would mean gaining a whole new set of skills - which costs money that the person may not have precisely because he would be prohibited from getting a better job in the same field. Catch-22.

    No, it fits in with the Republican viewpoint of fuck the employees in any way possible.
