There was a time when the non-compete clause – a document that prevents an employee from leaving for a competitor – was reserved for high-paid executives. Today these legal documents have become far more common, affecting a wide range of employees, including blue-collar workers.
A new employee may sign a non-compete clause because they are in dire need of a job, only to discover later that it has seriously limited their ability to get ahead professionally. Someone who has signed such a contract may not be able to accept a better position elsewhere should the opportunity arise. The clause might also limit the employee’s ability to negotiate pay raises.
