Job agreement not to compete


I signed a non compete agreement in Georgia and want to leave my job because all the drama there. It's not good for my health or sanity. There is another job that has offered me a job but they are in competition with my current employer. I have scanned the non compete if you would like to look over it?

Jim's Mailbag:

No...I'm not an employment lawyer, I'm a guy with some expertise in veterans benefits. That you signed an agreement has nothing to do with your status (?) as a veteran, this is a civilian problem and you need to speak with a civilian employment attorney. Non-competes are as common as fast food places these days, some are enforceable, others not so much. Talk with an expert before making a move that could hurt you.
