How iron clad is a 12 mth non-solicit agreement, after taking upfront money in a right to work state.


Thanks,

Bill Singer's going to hate me for this (not being an attorney), but I believe a right to work state situation has no bearing on a non-solicitation provision.  Among other things, Right to work laws, I thought, deal with union vs non-union employment.

Upfront $$$ = consideration = generally enforceable agreement.  That's assuming that everything else in the agreement is kosher.  At any rate, a non-solicit by itself doesn't keep you from working...just keeps you from actively soliciting your former clients.


...and to prevent any confusion (eh, Bill?!!)...
